Vangelis

Any other Vangelis fans here, perchance? :) When I was a little kid in the 80's, my uncle and aunt bought me the sheet music for 'Chariots of Fire' to try to hammer out on the piano. Since then, I've enjoyed discovering Vangelis' various pieces and soundtracks -- there is just something in his soaring themes that is rich with historical weight and textures, a strangely timeless synthesis of ancient voices and modern electronica that is inspiring and kind of healing in a way.

Am learning his 'Conquest of Paradise' theme on the piano now, so thought I'd make it my first 'contribution' to this thread. :)
