Can anyone identify the classical theme running under the surface of this 1981 Vangelis / John Anderson song?

I'm torn between Ode to Joy and Pachelbel's Canon (which Vangelis has prior form on, since he ripped it for 'Tears and Rain'). Or is it something else?


"All these moments will be lost in time, like... chariots... of... fire..."

I'm sure it's something else and arragh what IS that motif?
