a.k.a. Vangelis, as he was known internationally, died a couple of days ago, aged 79.
I thought I'd pay scant tribute here on this forum to that Composer, that Artist, that Innovator!
It's not just Chariots of Fire, that masterpiece Blade Runner, and 1492 (where the main theme of Gladiator is virtually copied-pasted from - probably due to temp-tracking) but what came long before (Heaven and Hell, Mask etc.), and after (Direct, Bitter Moon etc.) that completes a catalogue of extraordinary breadth and invention in a field he pretty much invented and owned.
May he rest in peace.
