Pharos Of Alexandria (I)

This song is by Rick Wakeman and appears on the album The Seven Wonders Of The World (1995).

The Pharos of Alexandria was the first large lighthouse ever to be built.
It was constructed in three stories just outside the harbour of Alexandria.
The fire at the top of the lighthouse was kept burning 24 hours a day.
The light could be seen almost as far as 35 miles out to sea.
Solidly built of white marble, it stood for over a thousand years before being destroyed by an earthquake in 769 A.D.
