Descending stones that hit the people in 1710 when the tower of the Aa-kerk in Groningen collapsed and also destroyed its first still brand-new Schnitger organ.

This installation which played music for about 14 minutes commemorated that tragic event during the inauguration of the restored 2nd Schnitger organ, which the church got in the early 19th century from the Academy Kerk in the same city.

This is quite an ingenious and unique construction I must say!

Wow!
