Barber Tops Classical List ; MUSIC

A TUNE played at JFK's funeral, in the film Platoon and remixed as a club anthem is Britain's favourite classical piece of music.

Barber's Adagio For Strings has been broadcast or performed more than any other classical passage in the last year, says the Performing Rights Society.

Second is Bach's famous Toccata in D Minor for organ, and third is Pachelbel's Canon, popular at wedding services and also running through the bassline of football anthem All Together Now by The Farm.
