Breaking News

A father and son team from Edinburgh think they have found a secret piece of music hidden in carvings at a famous medieval chapel in Midlothian.

Stuart Mitchell, 41 and his father Tommy, 75, said they had deciphered a musical code locked in the stones of Rosslyn Chapel [already famous for The Da Vinci Code] for more than 500 years.

They will reveal the music in May at a concert in the 15th century chapel...

Stuart Mitchell discovered a series of figures which he calls an "orchestra of angels" at the base of elaborate arches round the altar, each angel holding a musical instrument.

He worked with his father to decipher the patterns on cubes which jut out from the arches.
