Biography

Francis Monkman (born 9 June 1949, in Hampstead, North London, England) is a successful English rock, classical and film score composer, whose work includes the soundtrack to the British film, The Long Good Friday.

He was a student at Westminster School where he studied organ and harpsichord, later studying at the Royal College of Music, winning the Raymond Rusel prize for virtuosity on the harpsichord and becoming a member of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. In the late 1960s he founded the rock band Curved Air, and in 1977 collaborated with Brian Eno in the project 801.

In the 1980s he resumed classical performances and recordings, but together with guitarist and composer John Williams also worked to form the rock band called Sky.

    Taken is just awesome and I didn't know him until I saw the last or so episode of Top Gear where the song was included and I was stunned by it. I.m.o. the best music is the unknown to the majority.
