A Scottish church featured in The Da Vinci Code is embroiled in a fresh mystery of secret codes and heretical knowledge - but this one could be more than mere fiction.

An ex-RAF codebreaker and his composer son say they have deciphered a musical score hidden for nearly 600 years in the elaborate carvings on the walls of Rosslyn Chapel.
 
The pair believe the tune was encrypted because knowledge of music could have been considered heretical.

Thomas Mitchell, 75, a music teacher, and his son Stuart, 41, a pianist and composer, say they became intrigued by the markings on the chapel's arches more than 20 years ago.

Thomas was particularly struck by the 213 carved cubes in the Lady Chapel.

"I was obsessed by these symbols. I was convinced they meant something." Using codebreaking skills learned during the Korean War and his knowledge of classical music, Thomas Mitchell finally realised that the cubes depicted patterns made by sound waves.

"After scratching our brains for years the whole thing just came together in a eureka moment. We believe this is the Holy Grail of music and, unlike The Da Vinci Code, it is absolutely factual." Mr Mitchell realised the patterns on the cubes seem to match a phenomenon called cymatics or Chladni patterns. These form when a note is used to vibrate a sheet of metal or glass covered in powder.

Different frequencies produce different patterns such as flowers, diamonds and hexagons - shapes all present on the cubes.

The two men have brought the music back to life using instruments from the Middle Ages, adding words from a contemporary hymn to finish the piece, called The Rosslyn Motet.

Among the theories about Rosslyn is that it is the secret resting place of the Holy Grail, the Ark of the Covenant and even the mummified head of Christ.

.....What a pity that i can't listen to soundfiles right now (no way to plug in speakers, you see!)
Strange story- but stranger things have happened...
The story of the pied piper of Hamlin is a bit darker then the children's tale people know of; it reminds me a bit of the hidden music above.
There were travelling musicians in the middle ages (and medieval music can be very lively); whenever they turned up the young would gather and dance. Those would be occasions for letting go.
The good people of Hamlin now decided at some point that they had to put a stop to all that sinful behaviour, so they banned the bards from their town.
The result was that the musicians would instead play in a ravine near the mountain mention in the tale, and the youngsters would have their dance there, in secret.
When the good people of Hamlin discovered this, they decided that stronger measures were needed to stop this disgrace; so the next time a travelling musician turned up in the area, they hid on top of the ravine, and during the dance caused a rockslide. Several hundred youngsters and the musicians were killed.
The same thing happened again some years later, and the good people of Hamlin got a bad reputation for killing their own children simply because they indulged in dancing. So, eventually it was turned into the tale known today, which ends when the pied piper leads the town's children into a cave in the mountain...
Not my interpretation, but an explanation provided courtesy of Radio Deutsche welle some years ago...
