BBC News - Sir John Tavener: Orthodox Composer dies aged 69

Sir John Tavener, one of the leading British composers of the past 50 years, has died at the age of 69.

Sir John was known for music that drew on his deep spirituality, Orthodox Christianity and inspiration from other spiritual and religious traditions.

In 1992, The Protecting Veil topped the classical charts for several months and in 1997 his Song For Athene was played at the funeral of Princess Diana.

He had suffered ill health for much of his life, including a major heart attack in 2007. He died at his home in Child Okeford, Dorset, on Tuesday.
