The Rosslyn (Roslin) Chapel has, of course, nothing to do with the 
Templars - it was founded long after they were suppressed - and not much 
to do with anything else.  But then, 'The Da Vinci Code' doesn't have 
much to do with Da Vinci.  I wouldn't expect a "Scottish composer" to 
necessarily know much about mediaeval music - he is certainly hazy about 
mediaeval architecture.
