Performer Notes
  • Original score composed and performed by Vangelis.
  • Recorded at Nemo Studios, London, England.
  • Personnel: The Ambrosian Singers (vocals), Vangelis (various instruments).
  • Engineers: Raphael Preston, John Walker, Raine Shine.
  • Recorded at Nemo Studios, London, England.
  • All songs written by Vangelis except "Jerusalem" (Parry).
  • While only serious film buffs are likely to recall Hugh Hudson's role as the director of the Oscar-winning CHARIOTS OF FIRE, the Greek composer Vangelis became, and remained, a household name with his soundtrack for the 1981 film. At the time, the theme song was parodied as being excessively saccharin.
  • Indeed, with titles such as "Five Rings" and "100 Metres," the album wears its Olympian heart on its sleeve. Nonetheless, CHARIOTS OF FIRE is often a brooding work, and if the prevailing memory of this album is one of slow-motion runners and heady triumph, Vangelis's synthesizer work often conveys a sense of isolation and lost glory.
