Notes and Editorial Reviews
Hidden away in strange carvings on the arches of Rosslyn Chapel, Edinburgh (immortalised in "The Da Vinci Code") is the cymatic notation of an ancient hyymn, possibly coded by members of a cult of John the Baptist linked to the original (real) Knights Templar). Now de-coded, so forget the myths and fictions about the Holy Grail - this is the REAL Rosslyn secret.
“There’s no doubt about it: the [Rosslyn] music is gravely beautiful in its relative simplicity, and credibly ‘ancient’. It is performed by an accomplished, pure-toned quartet of singers. [The Chartres piece] is both sober and appealing. This passes what might be called a ‘blindfold test’: I enjoyed the music even before I knew what was behind it.”
