Simon and Garfunkel question

I was listening to the Best of today - Like a bridge over troubled water - and this may sound silly but which of the two voices is Paul Simon and which is Art Garfunkel?
I never saw any video footage of them to notice that.

The high voice is Garfunkel.

Put simply, Garfunkel's vocals are higher than Simon's. It's his soaring vocals you hear on Bridge Over Troubled Water. He also sings lead on Scarborough Fair.

Simon's vocals are instantly recognizable but much lower than Garfunkel's, so when they are singing together, you tend to hear Simon's voice more.
