Audio: Musical score "hidden" on Rosslyn Chapel arches for 600 years
The Daily Telegraph (UK, center-right newspaper) has an article on a musical score found encoded on the arches of Rosslyn Chapel (yes, the one from the Dan Brown novel, Freemasonry, et al). What convinced me that this wasn't just another Da Vinci Code styled, publicity-seeking attempt was listening to the motet it transcribed. Why would I have been skeptical? Oh, just that in addition to being found in the chapel associated with the Holy Grail, it also involved Chladni patterns, cubes, and an ex-RAF (Royal Air Force) codebreaker.
