Michel Colin plays a Mutin-Cavaillé-Coll in Africa
The 3-26 Mutin-Cavaillé-Coll organ at Notre Dame d'Afrique near Algiers was originally built in 1911 for the residence of an Englishman in Algiers. After his death in 1930, it was given to the church by his widow. Built under the supervision of, and played by Camille Saint-Saëns, the organ is one of five built by Mutin for North African locations. Alain Sals, Charles Henry and Philippe Alexandre restored the instrument in 2002.
