A team of code breakers discover 500 year-old music in the symbolic carvings of Rosslyn chapel in the village of Roslin, near Edinburgh.
Thomas Mitchell and his son, Stuart worked on the puzzle for years to finally discover the music hewn into the stone cubes.
The music has been recorded and will get its first official premiere in the chapel on May 18.
Musical experts were skeptical but did not dismiss the possibility of Mitchell’s 25 year-old effort in decoding the symbols.
“Many of the angels had musical instruments and some were arranged as a choir, but there was one angel we couldn’t work out,” he said. “Then we realized she was carrying a musical stave, the lined blueprint for musical composition, and therefore we were looking at a coded piece of music.”
Located 10 miles from Edinburgh, Rosslyn was built by Sir Gilbert Haye and Sir William Sinclair and is steeped in the traditions of the Knights Templar and Freemasonry.
The Mitchells believe the patterns on the cubes are Chladni patterns – created by vibrations of musical pitches.
