Michael Stoddart commenced his musical education as a chorister at Westminster Abbey and then as Organ Scholar at Magdalen College, Oxford. He broadened his experience with an extended period of organ study at the Paris Conservatoire with Susan Landale. After a lifetime of roles as organist at the cathedrals of Evreux, Portsmouth, Newcastle, Auckland (both Holy Trinity and St Patrick’s), Michael is now co-titular organist at the Basilica Notre Dame des Doms in Avignon, playing both the Cavaillé-Coll/Mutin choir organ and the historic Piantanida ‘Orgue Doré’.


From April to July 2023, Michael is the Acting Assistant Organist at Bath Abbey. By coincidence the Girls and Lay Clerks of the Abbey can be heard on tour in Avignon, Aix-en-Provence and Malaucène later this month.
