Choral music has always been part of Simon’s life, first as a treble, then a tenor, both in his local parish church choir and at school. The Beattie Cup for Musicianship at Aylesbury Grammar School is named after him.
Whilst at university, Simon won a choral scholarship to sing in Exeter Cathedral Choir, and he still sings with a variety of groups. His choral compositions have been broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and performed on both sides of the Atlantic.
