Notes & Reviews:

Simon Ponsford recently graduated MA with distinction from the Royal Academy of Music, where he was also awarded the S&M Eyres Wilson Scholarship and a Diploma of the Royal Academy of Music for outstanding performance. As an ensemble singer, Simon has sung with many professional choirs including Polyphony, English Voices, and Tenebrae; was an Apprentice in the Monteverdi Choir; and is a founding member of the Platinum Consort. He is currently a lay clerk in the choir of St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, and has just been appointed a Lay Vicar in the choir of Westminster Abbey. This is his debut recording as a soloist.

Expedition Audio Recommended
Simon is most impressive with a voice reminiscent of David Daniels. He should have a great career ahead of him. This is his first disc... He studied with Michael Chance and Ian Partridge... He shines, especially in such songs as “Awake Sweet Love” and “I Saw My Lady Weep”. He is definitely someone to watch and enjoy listening.... read more ...
