Sean Connery (RIP) Reads C.P. Cavafy’s Epic Poem "Ithaca," Set to the Music of Vangelis https://www.openculture.com/?p=1083166 via @openculture This video combines three things that make me happy: the voice of Sean Connery (who passed away today), the music of Vangelis (Blade Runner, Chariots of Fire), and the poetry of C.P. Cavafy. Put them all together and you get a blissful soundscape of rolling synth lines, rolling Scottish R’s, and a succession of Homeric images and anaphoric lines. And the video’s quite nice as well.
