COMPOSER Sir John Tavener, one of the greatest British figures in classical music, has died at the age of 69.

In the late 1960s he was famously signed to The Beatles' record label Apple and his music was notably performed at the funeral of Diana, Princess Of Wales, in 1997.

Sir John is said to have died "peacefully at home" in Child Okeford, Dorset.
