The great 16th century Cretan painter, Domenicos Theotokopoulos, known also as "El Greco" (The Greek), had always been an inspiration to Vangelis. On learning in 1995 that the National Gallery in Athens were wishing to acquire El Greco's painting of St Peter, Vangelis composed and recorded a wonderful musical tribute to his honor, featuring the Greek tenor Konstantinos Paliatsaras and the Spanish soprano Montserrat Caballe. Those inspirational recordings with three further compositions, were commercially issued in late 1998 with the title (A tribute to) "El Greco". Enjoy a musical chef d' oeuvre.
