Sylvia Syms Recitals

The photo will take you to Sylvia’s official web site if you would like to know more about her.

In 1984/85 Simon James and Nick Webb began a long and successful collaboration with the actress Sylvia Syms on a series of shows combining poetry and music. This involved both writing and arranging music for the shows as well as appearing in them. The success of this collaboration led to shows with Jenny Agutter, Jenny Seagrove, Martin Shaw, Louise Jameson and the late Sir John Mortimer among many others. When DML was created in 1987 it took over organizing the music for these shows and the recording of some of the material. The company administers the rights to all of this.
