On Tuesday, we lost legendary composer Marvin Hamlisch.

Since then, there has been an outpouring of fond farewells from friends and fans alike.

Fellow Broadway legend Andrew Lloyd Webber was both. He said:

"I only heard of Marvin Hamlisch's death this morning whilst I was on holiday. I am still reeling. I saw him but six months ago.

Although I knew Marvin before, I became a friend though a USA TV chat show when he was at the height of his Chorus Line, witty performing fame. No one knew who I was. Marvin went to the piano, played some of my melodies and said to the studio audience 'This is who Andrew is.'

No one other than a brilliant talent and a supremely generous composer and performer would have done that. We became firm friends ever since. Farewell Singular Sensation."

Beautiful words from a man normally known for his melodies.

Thank you, Sir Andrew.

    Mem'ries,
    Light the corners of my mind
    Misty water-colored memories
    Of the way we were
    Scattered pictures,
    Of the smiles we left behind
    Smiles we gave to one another
    For the way we were
    Can it be that it was all so simple then?
    Or has time re-written every line?
    If we had the chance to do it all again
    Tell me, would we? Could we?
    Mem'ries, may be beautiful and yet
    What's too painful to remember
    We simply choose to forget
    So it's the laughter
    We will remember
    Whenever we remember…
    The way we were…
    The way we were…
