With this sheet music, you can play "Chariots of Fire" by Vangelis on piano!

It's an accurate, carefully created piano arrangement of the full song.

Originally created as the title theme for the 1981 British film "Chariots of Fire", the instrumental theme was written and recorded by Greek musician Vangelis (Evángelos Odysséas Papathanassíou).

The film tells the true story of two British athletes (Eric Liddell and Harold Abrahams) with different backgrounds, and their competition at the 1924 Olympics.

Directed by Hugh Hudson (starring Ben Cross and Ian Charleson as the two athletes), the film was a huge success, won four Academy Awards, and is considered one of the greatest British films ever made.

Vangelis won an Academy Award for the film's soundtrack ("Best Original Score").

The instrumental theme for the opening sequence was named "Titles" on the original soundtrack album, but became later known as "Chariots of Fire".

The theme was also released as a single, topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart (still the only piece by a Greek artist to achieve this), and became the best-selling single of 1981!

The piece has been covered by countless artists of different genres, it has been used in many films and commercials, and was used by Steve Jobs when he introduced the first Macintosh in 1984.

"Chariots of Fire" is a wonderful song to play on the piano!
