"Simon is by far the best lecturer we have heard" (Passenger: Saga Pearl II, 2016)
"My cousin Simon's playing of the organ was breathtaking..."
(Natasha Brereton-Fukui describing her wedding at Lincoln Cathedral)
"As well as being an enthusiastic conductor, Simon is a wizard on the organ. No matter how large or small the instrument, you can guarantee he will get the most out of it!"
(Alan Cooper, Cornish Guardian)
...what a genius Simon Dunbavand is, not only as an accompanist, but with the complexities of Bach and of Messiaen, which were quite incredible and uplifting... He never ceases to amaze me: a composer, conductor, soloist and accompanist now revealed as a brilliant speaker; one who revealed to us in a superbly researched talk in the cathedral chapter house [...] just what made Messiaen tick. (Alan Cooper, Cornish Guardian)
