The Rosslyn Motet

Imagine that an entire church was a hymn, a song in praise to God. Imagine it was in a code that was unbroken - until now.

Imagine no longer - the Rosslyn Motet is from the 15th Century Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland that is carved with angel musicians accompanied by cubes sequentially arranged and carved with geometric patterns.

A father and son team spent a total of 27 years on the puzzle, with the son producing the music with authentic 15th century instruments. The following video is amazing, touching, and beautiful with a haunting medieval sound.

You can find out more and even purchase this for yourself at The Rosslyn Motet.

Found while perusing US Catholic magazine, July 2007
