Produced and Scored by Stuart Mitchell with Latin translations by Virginia Avalon
This is your opportunity to own the complete version of the Rosslyn Motet as yet unheard in its complete form. The score has been revised to reflect in the greatest clarity the comparison between the cube symbols and the application of Chladni Patterns.
The CD also includes Stuart Mitchell's incredible account of the discoveries made in the 3 years after their translation of the music. Discover the Chladni Sound Patterns that set the score in stone for over 550 years.
Musicologist and author Richard Merrick provides some fascinating incites into the natural laws of music and resonance
which explains how the ancients knew about and incorporated these sciences of sound and geometry into there lives and art.

The Rosslyn Motet - Music of the Cubes -
The story of how my father and I
decoded the music of Rosslyn Chapel
using Cymatics as
Rosslyn and Cymatics Video's
This video presentation is an interesting comparison made between the patterns produced by certain pitches and frequencies in Cymatics and the symbols on the faces of the cubes. Tommy's assigned note of the pitch can be heard in the voices of the choir as it merges with the pitch of the cymatics demonstration.
If you listen closely to the pitch of the oscillator (humming the pitch to yourself)
you will hear the first note of the choir and its relevant cube, are the same.
“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.”
– Raymond S. Tuttle (International Record Review)
A Symbolic Symphony in Stone
- 'Frozen Music'
holds a musical mystery in its architecture and design. At one end of the
chapel, on the ceiling are 4 cross-sections of arches containing elaborate
symbolic designs on each array of cubes (in actual fact they are rectangles
The 'cubes' are attached to the arches in a musically sequential
And to confirm this, at the ends of each arch there is an angel playing
a musical instrument of a different kind. After 27 years of study and
research by Stuart's father Thomas.J.Mitchell, we believe he has found the
pitches and tonality that match the symbols on each cube, revealing its
melodic and harmonic progressions.
It is what we could call 'frozen music',
a little like
cryogenics. The music has been frozen in time by symbolism,
it was only a matter of time before the symbolism began to 'thaw out' and begin
to make sense to scientific and musical perception.
