Vangelis is one of the most succesful men who ever composed music for a film.Oneof his classics are called The Conquest Of Paradise.His popularity lies in the fact that he never tries to compose too complex tunes,but instead his tunes and motifs are relly simple,but yet,somehow hugely enjoyable.He often uses brasses with percussion and piano and chorus,as can be heard in the main theme.At the second track he only uses lilly flutes with percussion and xilofon.City Of Isabel features a guitar play with strings.The track Light And Shadow is one of my favourites:a wonderful unity of chorus,drums,percussion and strings and lilly flutes.Deliverance features a guitar play with percussion and flutes and some cymbal crashes.West Across The Ocean Sea features some flutes,percussion and a soft chorus that are hard to hear.Eternity starts with a horn,then srings,piano and a chorus join.Hispanola features brasses,a guitar,drums and percussion and a chorus.Moxica And The Horse is pure guitar play with some percussion.Twenty-Eighth Parallel is a wonderful variation of the main theme - this time the chorus is soft,and accompanied by a piano.Pinta-Nina-Santa Maria is guitar play with percussion and brasses.All in all,this soundtrack is a really enjoyable one if you not loathe soundtracks which are rather simplistic.
