Hidden music discovered in Da Vinci painting

snib writes "An Italian musician and computer technician claims to have uncovered a hidden musical score in Leonardo Da Vinci's "Last Supper." From the article: "[This raises] the possibility that the Renaissance genius might have left behind a somber composition to accompany the scene depicted in the 15th-century wall painting. 'It sounds like a requiem,' Giovanni Maria Pala said. 'It's like a soundtrack that emphasizes the passion of Jesus.'"

Pala published this and other findings about the "Last Supper" painting in his book The Hidden Music, released in Italy Friday."
