Temple Of The Sun

Ever since I heard the piano at the start of Mike Oldfields Sentinal I fell in love with its melodic sound and this tune really does compound the fact. After listening to it a few times on the trot it sounds like a few instrument playing a similar chord line or two. This makes it very easy to pick up the tune and hum/whistle along too always a bonus in my book. Also the faint bird chirping at 1 minute inn makes for a relaxing intro (ish) before picking up again to another good ending to an all round well executed piece
