Sir John Tavener

news

Our thoughts are with the family of Sir John Tavener, who died yesterday at his home with his family.

He was Britain’s foremost classical composer, renowned for his both profoundly religious and inspirational secular works. 

Both John Lennon and Ringo Starr took an interest in John Tavener’s music.  His first major composition, the iconoclastic and ground-breaking The Whale, was premiered at the Proms in 1969 and was recorded by Apple Records the following year, followed by the release of the extraordinary Celtic Requiem, a piece for orchestra and children’s choir, in 1971.

Andy Davis wrote: "John Tavener’s The Whale and Celtic Requiem are two of the most extraordinary records ever issued, certainly on Apple Records, and most likely on any mainstream label. A bold claim, perhaps. But listen first and then decide."

Jackie Lomax, signed to Apple Records as a songwriter and artist, has passed away in the Wirral, Merseyside after a short illness.

From the Apple released album "Is This What You Want?":

"Jackie Lomax is a singer of energy and passion. His roots are in R&B and in the best tradition of blue-eyed soul (even if his eyes are green). There’s a toughness to his vocal style and a sensitive side too; his songs speak of loss and longing, love and life. Is this what you want? What more can there be?"
