I think I have mentioned this tribute site for Michael J. Bird before, but it won't hurt to be remembered.

The music, written for the series "Who pays the ferryman" by Yannis Markopoulos, has become world famous and was even used in the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games.

This Cretan born composer has put the soul of the island and the inhabitants in it.
