Simon with his award certificate in Salisbury Cathedral after the celebratory service last Saturday.
At the RSCM Celebration Day 2019 in Salisbury Cathedral, Simon Lole received his award as an Associate of the Royal School of Church Music.
The citation reads, “Simon Lole has served as the inspiring director of music at St Mary’s, Warwick, and at Sheffield and Salisbury Cathedrals - and since 2010 at St Mary’s Church Swanage. As well as being a sought-after choral director, he has built a considerable reputation as a composer of church music, particularly works that are accessible to listeners and practical for singers.”
Several members of the choir and congregation of St Mary’s attended the service with Simon’s family and friends. We congratulate him on receiving this honour which is public recognition of the high esteem in which he is held by all who know him.
