297. Music Inspirations in Venice

297. Music Inspirations in Venice

And suddenly Palma had a music inspiration.
Palmina listened to the music and put her head on Palma’s right side to be with him in their Peony Gondola.

»Oh, so beautiful, this Inspiration, Palma.
I saw the Gondola slowly moving to the Giudecca island.

And I saw the stars over Venice.

I saw Johann Sebastian Bach with his family, with his daughters.

I saw Vivaldi with the talented Orphan Girls musician, his spiritual daughters, with all their Gondolas also moving to Giudecca Island.
And every Gondola has a lantern to shine in the late evening in Venice.

All were happy to visit the Chinese family with their musicians«, Palmina said like dreaming,

»Exactly I had also this music visions, Palmina! We are dreaming the same dream…«

The music inspiration and the music was like that:

✮ ✮ ✮

After that the Peony Gondola moved in the 16th century.

Palma was painting this year intensive every day on his new creations about the life of San Saba.
Palmina came in the church where Palma is now painting every day.
She has fresh breads and she has also her music instrument, her lute.

As she saw that he does not make a break to eat she wanted to take her lute to play for him, but…
In this moment she discovered a new music score which was beside Palma’s music instrument Viola da braccio on a little working table.

She took the music score and wanted to play it.
She read: »Ave Verum. Oh, it is for Choir and Organ and Instruments ad libitum.«

Palmina started to play the music score on her music instrument.

Palma stopped painting and smiled in her direction.
He realized that Palmina discovered Palma’s new music score.

Palmina played the four voices on her Lute and made soft ‚arpeggios‘ of the 4 Voices as accords like a harp.

Palma looked intensive to Palmina, he saw her playing like an angel, he saw her innocent smile, so peacefully, like the Saint Cecilia, sent by the Santa Lucia.
He saw her beautiful hairs, her cheeks, her eyes, her talented hands,…

Inside his heart he painted her, her whole body, her talented hands, her eyes, everything,…an eternal moment.

Palma heard all the voices of the angels as Palmina played his »Ave Verum« for him, here in the little Church Chiesa San Antonin, a few steps from her baker’s shop where her family house is and from where the little fine, fresh, breads are made at the ‚Campo Bandiera e Moro‘ in Venice. (A few steps from the Ospedale La Pieta where the famous music school is.)

And now the eternal smell of the fresh backed breads are in the air and Palma completely forgot that he was hungry since two hours.

»Such a beautiful Choir Compositions. It fits to every ‚Missa Presta‘ at the ‚Communio‘, isn’t it, Palma? I will ask the choir Master Claudio Monteverdi if he can perform it every morning in the San Marco Cathedral…«, Palmina said like a little sweet bird who wants to fly direct to the San Marco Cathedral and to bring the new music score to the famous Choir Master Maestro Claudio Monteverdi.Palma smiled. He was lucky that Palmina is his music inspiration, innocent white pigeon, his sweet clever yellow canary bird, his eternal Palmina Albina!«

And Palmina took now her basket with the fresh, little, fine, white breads and she lifted the basket so that Palma could sniff on them.
During this she smiled and made thin Asian- like eyes.

»Wonderful!«, Palma il Giovane said after he sniffed the fresh smell of the fresh backed breads.
She gave him one and moved her head meaning »Eat, Palma, eat it fresh and warm. Today you worked so much and hard. You are hungry,I can feel it«

Palma took it and made two parts of the warm bread and looked into Palmina’s eyes.
He gave her one half and she smiled.

Now both started to eat the bread, smiling and with much respect.

✮ ✮ ✮

And as Palma and Palmina saw this Peony Gondola Vision they heard the composition for the Choir of San Marco in Venice:

296. Bach, Vivaldi and the the Orphan Girls Orchestra in Venice

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palma said to his Pigeon:

»Palmina, the little sweet bird in the morning said to me that you performed my composition LAKE yesterday! Did you, Palmina…?
I felt in my heart that you played for me…«

Palmina smiled and was happy that Palma could feel her music secret surprise.

He took her hands and kissed her talented hands tender and thankfully.
Palmina’s eyes shined and she felt that Palma wants to heal her hands.
Palma il Giovane could feel in the last days that she had pains on her hands because she prepared hard for this concert.

And during these days he could also feel her tender cheek kisses as he slept and he could feel it in his dreams.

And after that Palmina smiled and hugged Palma and gave him a sweet tender kiss on his cheek – in their Peony Gondola hour at 23 p.m. During this they suddenly continued to see the Peony Gondola vision with Bach in Venice in the 18th century:

✮ ✮ ✮

01 picture - San Marco Place in Venice.jpg

01 picture – San Marco Place in Venice

They saw the stars over Venice at the evening sky and they saw this evening Master Johann Sebastian Bach alone with his wife in a huge Gondola.
After the brilliant concert at the ‚Ospedale de la Pieta Girls Orchestra‘ with Vivaldi’s »Gloria« they are all (Bach, his family, Vivaldi and his girls orchestra) invited together with the girls at Giudecca island at a Chinese family, which came once in the 16th century and are living there.
They know a lot of stories about Marco Polo and his Asian Princess and of course a lot of stories about Palmina and Palma. And they are interested in Asian music instruments and of course asian tea.

On their way to Giudecca Island Bach said to his wife: »Maestro Vivaldi’s Girls Orchestra and Choir are brilliant. Should we move to Asia or to Venice, hmm? If I could have such brilliant musicians for my compositions, Anna Magdalena…? This would be a miracle!«, Bach said a little bit sad.

»Yes, this would be a miracle.
Hmmm, but a miracle happened, dear Johann Sebastian…
It happened:
Vivaldis orphan music school girls performed with padre Maestro Vivaldi all your missa brevis¹):

the missa brevis G-Major,
the missa brevis in g-minor,
the missa brevis in F-Major and
the mystic missa brevis in A-Major with Flauto traverso *)

Ach, so beautiful compositions, Johann Sebastian.«, Anna Magdalena said with a sigh in her voice.

They heard the La Pieta Girls Choir and orchestra singing Bach’s composition in a vision and they saw Vivaldi conducting in Venice and it was like this:
*) VIDEO: [music score] (5min) Bach, missa brevis, Mass in A major – Kyrie (Herreweghe) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-Bqgw9Z4S8

»Yes, this was a miracle. Initially I composed this short missa brevis for Franz Anton von Sporck ²) and his ‚Sporck theatre‘. Like a miracle my compositions came in the hands of Antonio Vivaldi in Venice…«, Johann Sebastian said smiling and he put his strong huge arm around his little Anna Magdalena Bach smiling.

»Yes, Johann Sebastian, padre Maestro Vivaldi had good connections to Franz Anton von Sporck and he met him several times as his La Pieta Girls Orchestra gave concerts there in Prague…«, Anna said proud.

»Yes, they performed my compositions in Prague and Venice, yes a miracle…
Thank you Santa Lucia !!! Tomorrow we have to visit the chiesa of Santa Lucia also to visit the Santa-Lucia-paintings of Palma il Giovane there«, he said and searched his Mandolin.

02 picture – Gondolas moving to Giudecca Island

All the Gondola’s are now moving at this evening to Giudecca Island with Bach, Vivaldi and the whole talented girls from the La Pieta Orphan shelter music school Orchestra.
They are all invited to the old Chinese Families to a Tea ceremony concert in their big gardens in Venice to hear the Yin-Yang-Chinese-Garden-Orchestra. And all are looking forward to have this Asian Tea and to hear the original Asian Music Instruments.

* * *

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision:

Palmina smiled and Palma knew which music piece will be performed at this Chinese concert.

Palma smiled secretly and shy.

»Palma?

Hm, why are you smiling so shy? Palmaaaa? Hmm? «

And they saw the Asian Trigram on the heaven and the heaven was pink with white clouds:

☱ – LAKE- DUI – THE JOYOUS

Now a voice said in ancient old Chinese language style:

» 說萬物者莫說乎澤 –
Of all that forces that GIVE JOY things,
there is no more gladdening than the LAKE ☱ «

»Oh, Palma!«

»Oh, Palmina!«

»Pi-«

»-Pa«

and now they made both a round mouth, moved them to each other mouths
and said together:
»Liu – to – kiss«

And then they kissed sweet and short and smiled.

»Apart from the 1733 Missa in B minor for the Dresden court (later incorporated in the Mass in B minor), Johann Sebastian Bach wrote four further Kyrie–Gloria Masses, BWV 233–236. These compositions, consisting of the first two sections of the Mass ordinary (i.e. the Kyrie and the Gloria), have been indicated as Missae breves (Latin for „short masses“) or Lutheran Masses. They seem to have been intended for liturgical use, considering a performance time of about 20 minutes each, the average duration of a Bach cantata. They may have been composed around 1738/39.[1] Possibly they were written for Count Franz Anton von Sporck² or performed by him in Lysá.«

He was one of the most notable cultural and intellectual figures in central Europe in the early 18th century. «

295. Palmina’s bird message in the morning

Early in the morning Palma opened his window, it was raining and a bird sung very beutiful and loud.
Normally no bird sings during this strong rain.
It was a heart-to-heart message by Palmina. The bird sung her message because Palmina send  yesterday mornig a message to Palma but the administrators of the church of social media erased the text without any reason.
Only the heaven had merci with Palma and Palmina and the little bird was like an angel and a real messenger.

Palma understood and felt Palmina’s thoughts.

Later Palma went outside as the weather was sunny and went through the nature to think about Palmina“s message and in his heart he creatad a few music creations and it was like that)

294. The Peony Gondola as secure communication

294. The Peony Gondola as secure communication

They continued the dream their Peony Gondola dream:

✮ ✮ ✮

»The Peony Gondola lead us in the 21st century…
So we learned what a phone can do. There is Whatsapp or Wechat to transmit music score, or music files, pdf or pictures or music and audio messages«, Palma said very calm.

»Hmm, do we really need a phone to talk?
We are here sitting side-by-side in our Peony Gondola every day and speaking to each other.«

»Yes, Palmina. It is an other dimension here in the Peony Gondola…

Palmina, we are connected with our dreams and with our hearts.
Its good that our hearts first found us before we have our first phone talk.«

»Oh, Palma, you are so romantic…

This is my Palma like I know him from the 16th century! My Palma, my painter, my composer, my writer…«
»…Palma? By the way: There is an wrong number in the phone number: the first zero after the +43(0)… has to be removed….«

Palma smiled, because he realized that Palmina is very clever and understands now that a Peony Gondola Connection is something which they will never loose and no one can steal their secure communication, not even the Church of Social Media and its administrators.

Palmina hold Palma’s right hand and Palma could feel it.
Now they remembered the music of the time of their 16th century.

Especially early in the morning in Venice when Palmina brought fresh little white fine breads to the Dogan’s Palace.
There was the smell of fresh backed bread in the air in the morning of Venice.

All people in Venice know this fine little fresh breads and love them – Palmina created them by herself.

Daily in the morning she brought the fresh breads to the Dogan’s Palace and later she went to the ‚Missa Presta‘ (shortest possible mass) to the little chapel on the left side of the famous San Marco Cathedral with her basked with a few breads for Palma.
Palma was sitting there waiting in the early morning and silently smiling to her and she smiled secretly shy back.

Palma il Giovane wrote once to the composer William Byrd*) if he can send a very short ‚missa brevis‘ (a short composition for a mass) especially a very short ‚Kyrie‘, but very good composed, for the music during this short ‚missa presta‘ in the morning in Venice.

William Byrd send him a copy of the ‚Mass for 4 Voices‘ and made a special short ‚Kyrie‘ for this morning prayers.
Palma was lucky abaout the fact that today the choir of San Marco Cathedral will sing this short Kyrie.

During Palma and Palmina smiled secretly to each other they heard the music composed by William Byrd*) (who was nearly in the age of Palma il Giovane).
The little fine choir in that San Marco Cathedral sung now during the ‚missa presta‘ the ‚Kyrie‘ and it was like that:

»William Byrd ( c.1539/40 or 1543 – 4 July 1623), was an English composer of the Renaissance. He wrote in many of the forms current in England at the time, including various types of sacred and secular polyphony, keyboard (the so-called Virginalist school), and consort music. Although he produced sacred music for Anglican services, sometime during the 1570s he became a Roman Catholic and wrote Catholic sacred music later in his life.«

After that Peony Vision Palmina asked shy:

»Look, how they people of the 21st century transcribed our music notation system from our notation system of the 16th century 300 or 400 years later!!! Palma, look….!!!«

»Hmm, interesting!…Really good transcription…«

 

pictures 1-14 – transcription into modern music notation


»…Would we remember the notation system after 300 or 400 years later Palmina?«
Palmina smiled for a while and she was thinking about this question.

Palmina smiled and Palma could feel it.

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina had red cheeks.

»Eternal Love, Oh, Palma. So beautiful…«

She hugged Palma deep in his heart and Palma could feel it and around Palma’s heart it felt so bright, full of light, warm and love.

Suddenly the Peony Gondola showed them a painting.

»Oh, how beautiful, who is the painter, Palma«,

»Oh this is Master Samuel Morse¹). An art teacher in a later century…«

»Samuel Finley Breese Morse (April 27, 1791 – April 2, 1872) was an American painter and inventor. After having established his reputation as a portrait painter, in his middle age Morse contributed to the invention of a single-wire telegraph system based on European telegraphs. He was a co-developer of Morse code and helped to develop the commercial use of telegraphy.«
______________________________________

Later they saw how Samuel Morse looking up to the evening sky and looked to Planet Mars and he heard beep sounds:  . .. …

Samuel Morse tried to write down these signals and later he developed an alphabet based on three sounds high, deep, middle and high.

On each tone it was possible to make one, two or three beep sounds.

So 3×3 was created. The communication made it possible 9×9 different signs.
But to develop an alphabet on earth it needed only 26 letters…

So later Samuel Morse changed the Trinary sound system to a Binary ».« (short beep) and » – « (long beep).

picture – Morse Alphabet for transmitting letters

They saw how the world had communication with this Morse alphabet about long distance.

Palma and Palmina looked very interested.

Now they saw the people of the 21th century.

Palmina looked and asked surprised: »What are they doing? They are pressing with their fingers on a flat display, holding it sometimes to the ear and speaking with this flat display?«

»Oh, yes, Palmina, the people of the 21st century calling it ‚Handy‘ ‚Tablet‘ or ‚Smartphone‘. They are writing each other messages, letters, sending paintings and sending acoustic messages like music…«

»Wooh…oh, really? Oh Palma. They communicate in the 21st century like this?«

»Hmmm! Not bad, isn’t it, Palmina?«

»Oh yes, Palma. If we had this possibility to communicate to each other in our 16h century, as I had been for over 2 years at that concert tour in China in the Pacific…we could write us every day. And the people of the 21st century are able also to send each other music score?«

»Oh, yes, Palmina. But the Church of Social Media has also it’s influence in this way of communication. So the people use Whatsapp, WeChat instead of Messenger because the administrators of the Church or Social Media take money to erase written messages and exchange the message to an other text – to a ‚fake-message‘. So they are paid to make intrigues…«
»Oh, this is like in our 16th century. They stole the letters of the people of the Republic of Venice and so they could attack 1572 the North of Cyprus Island to expand their political religious system with killing so much people…and the Republic of Venice was lost on that island till today.
And this religious extremists are stealing messages also there in the 21 century?«

»They have everywhere their spies and also sitting in high positions of governments only to stop the communication between people who are not from their religion…They are especially targeting tourists which are not members of their church of Social Media.«

»Hmm. So what should the people of the 21st century do to be independent of their influence?«

»After the painter Samuel Morse invented the ‚ Morse alphabet‘ to make it possible to communicate with written text there was the invention of the ‚Phone‘. It makes it possible to hear the voice in the same moment when two persons are using that phone even if they are thousands of Miles / Kilometers away from each other…«

»Amazing! If we had a phone in our century, Palma….
I would have called you every day to hear your voice and to talk with you. My Palma, my composer, my deep love.«

»And I could hear your music. I could hear you playing my compositions on the Phone…Hach Palmina, what a dream…«

And Palma put his arm around Palmina and Palmina put her head on Palma’s side.

After a while she said:

»The people really wrote messages in the Morse Code Language?«

»Yes, Palmina. My Pigeon. My yellow canary bird. My deep . – . .-. -. .- .-.. / .-.. — …- .«

Palmina smiled because she could feel what Palma’s heart wanted to say to Palmina’s heart.

And again Palmina felt the Golden light heart-to-heart connection and Palma felt it also and smiled.

»Palmina. In the morning a bird tweeted very beautiful and brought to me a message from you which was stolen from the Administrators of the church of Social Media…Thank you Palmina, such a beautiful message…«

Palmina smiled and after a while of thinking she said:

»Do you think we can once communicate like People in the 21st century, Palma?«

»You mean we should have once a phone call?

But to make a phone call you need to know the right phone number…«

»Oh, ok a phone number I needed, yes, yes, Palma…«

And now they thought how would it be to have a phone call in their live and during this they heard a music like this one:

291. Palmina and Palma talking about different music centuries

»Palma?«

»Hm?«

»The music after our 16th century, hundred years later, the music of Vivaldi is really very dynamic and very modern compared to our time 100 years before him«

»Yes, Palmina I know…«

»…and your Peony Gondola Song is heading to this music style…«

»Oh, thank you my Pigeon!«

And they now remembered the music in the 16th century as Maestro Gallus¹) came to Venice and his artwork had been performed and they heard his music like this:

VIDEO: (Jacobud GALLUS: https://youtu.be/UeGebVXFI2s )

 

___________________________________________________________________
¹) Jacobus Gallus (1550 – 1591)
Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacobus_Gallus

»Jacobus Gallus Carniolus (a.k.a. Jacob(us) Handl, Jacob(us) Händl, Jacob(us) Gallus; Slovene: Jakob Petelin Kranjski) (3 July 1550 – 18 July 1591) was a late-Renaissance composer of Slovene[1] ethnicity. Born in Carniola, which at the time was one of the Habsburg lands in the Holy Roman Empire, he lived and worked in Moravia and Bohemia during the last decade of his life. «
____________________________________________________________________

»Oh, such remembering to our 16th century, Jacobus died so early at 1591 as the Rialto bridge was ready build«

And Palma could feel that Palmina is thinking to continue their old love in the 16th century and they started to dream in music and it was like that and both could feel it:

»Oh, Palma!«

»Oh, Palmina!«

»Palmina?«

»Hm?«

»I just finished a new chapter of my remembering to my uncle Vily. Like to read it?«

»Oh, yes, Palma, I will…«
And Palmina read the new Chapter:

And after she read the new chapter Palmina said »Great story, but I like your music more than the soundtrack of this 2nd sun music-video at the Uncle Vily story…«

Palma smiled and they repeated to hear the new music creation together in the Peony Gondola at their 23 o’clock hour and it was like that:

290. Bach plays – Palma remembers

vivaldisvenicettl

And after they saw this Peony Vision Palmina said:

»Oh this is so interesting, Palma. Let us see if they have the original music score of your composition for orphan children after hundred years… this is a long time period!!!«
And they saw this:

✮ ✮ ✮

And later after the meal Antonio Vivaldi and Johann Sebastian Bach with his daughters went all in the library of the Ospedale de la Pieta and Maestro Vivaldi and his talented musician girls showed all their music instruments and all the ancient music score they have.

»Look, Maestro Bach«, said a girl and deep in her heart she wished to be Johann Sebastian Bach’s adoptive daughter, »… here in our Ospedale de la Pieta we have 21 Violins, 4 Cellos, 2 marine trumpets, six small violas (ideal for our girls orchestra) two viola d’amore, two mandolines, two lutes, one theorbo, four hunting horns with accessories, two psalteries with harmonic box, two cymbals, three flutes, two big cymbals with spinets, six spinets…«. The little girl was very excited to be allowed to explain Master Johann Sebastian Bach their music instruments.

»Six spinets…hm…. very, very good….
You have a good music school.«
The girl jumped a little bit full of joy and played with her hairs and smiled.

Bach said to Master Vivaldi: »…In Germany we have not this equipment at my school and it is not a music school…«, Bach said and he sat down to a spinet and stated to play one of the six. Antonio Vivaldi listened interested and observed the polyphonic independence of Bach’s creations and was fascinated.
The girls made big wide open eyes and mouth as they heard how Bach played the Spinett and he modulated through all the »Quint-Circle«¹ with its 24 modi.

¹ »Quint-Circle« – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circle_of_fifths

»CIRCLE OF FIFTHS
In music theory, the circle of fifths (or circle of fourths) is the relationship among the 12 tones of the chromatic scale, their corresponding key signatures, and the associated major and minor keys. More specifically, it is a geometrical representation of relationships among the 12 pitch classes of the chromatic scale in pitch class space. «

² „Well tempered piano“ – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Well-Tempered_Clavier

»The Well-Tempered Clavier, BWV 846–893, is a collection of two sets of preludes and fugues in all 24 major and minor keys, composed for solo keyboard by Johann Sebastian Bach. In Bach’s time Clavier (keyboard) was a generic name indicating a variety of keyboard instruments, most typically a harpsichord or clavichord – but not excluding an organ either. «

____________________________

All listened and did not move or say any word as long as Bach played.

Anna Magdalena Bach could understand him also Antonio Vivaldi: Bach invented the „Well tempered piano“² which will be used in the future of all musicians.

»Look, there they have the music-social, music pedagogic composition of Palma il Giovane the ‚Missa Ospedale de la Pieta in Venice in G-Magor‘!!!!«, Catharina Dorothea, Bach’s eldest daughter said very happy and she jumped a little bit like a young girl.
And all the orphan girls came to see this music score in their library.
»Woooh, let me see, let me see, a composition for us from Palma il Giovane the famous painter and Master Scholar of Master Titian!!!!«

And the nuns came to see what happens here in the big library of the Ospedale de la Pieta.

And they opened their mouth like looking to a miracle as they realized that the music score interests the famous Johann Sebastian Bach.

Later the girls played a welcom concert for Bach and they played the „Gloria“ by Antonio Vivaldi and it was like that:

✮ ✮ ✮

As Palma and Palmina saw this Peony Gondola Vision suddenly Palma had a strong real remembering about their time in the 16th century and Palmina could feel it:

Often Palmina played during Palma painted on an important painting for 40 minutes at once and then she made a break with her lute. And during this break Palma had to go to the Organ in that church, where he was painting, and had to play 40 minutes for her and she listened very interested if Palma makes a progress in his music polyphonic creativity.
She was like the Saint Cecilia who helps him from the world of the body, the material, to come to the world of immaterial, the world of inspiration in art and music.
And it seemed that Palma il Giovane was inspired by her friendly listening to his music creations.
Always if he looks in her direction Palmina smiled back to him and Palma smiled.

And this they made very often and during several years as long Palma painted on huge painting in a church.

Later they made this in the Ospedaletto at the Crociferi and later also at the San Antonin Church near Palmina’s bakery shop where her home was. (There he painted during the whole year in that church and finished the paintings in the year 1593)

Palmina put again her head on Palma’s side and was happy about this intensive rememberings of the 16th century and she lifted a little lantern and smiled.

»Daddy, you are very famous here in Venice…«, Johanna Carolina said and was proud that these famous musicians from Venice wanted to have a signature on their music score by Johann Sebastian Bach.

And after a long while the girls run back to the ‚Ospedale la Pieta‘ – their shelter where the girls without parents having their home in Venice. Antonio Vivaldi stayed and sat down to the table where the Bach family was sitting.

»Want you have a meal with us? Let us talk about the last 35 years…«

»Yes, good Idea. … Oh, please also a Spaghetti Pomodore a la Marco Polo, please, Signorina..«, Antonio Vivaldi said to the young waiter girl.

»Fa bene, Maestro Antonio Vivaldi, Spaghetti Pomodore a la Marco Polo…«, the waiter girl answered.

Johann Sebastian and Antonio Vivaldi spoke now the whole time about their last 35 years and what changed in their life in Venice and in Germany.

»Here in Venice, here in this bakery shop house lived once the famous lute playing Palmina Albina,
who inspired Jacopo Palma il Giovane to his famous paintings and a lot of compositions…«

Bach smiled and nodded knowing this story.

»Was she not also music teacher here once?«, Anna Magdalena Bach asked Antonio Vivaldi.

* * *

And as Palmina and Palma saw this Peony Vision Palmina put her head on Palma’s side and smiled lucky.

»The musicians are speaking about you, Palmina. Even after over hundred years they know that you made concerts with that brilliant girls Orchestra.«, Palma said proud and put his arm around her and Palmina could feel it.
And Palmina also felt Palma’s big love in this moment, in this Peony Gondola hour, at this 23 p.m. o’clock, which is surrounding her like thousands of Peony Roses.

Palmina smiled and said looking up to his head.
»Oh, Palma. That the world is not forgetting me as musician it is your love who made this possible……We had good concerts at the Ospedale de la Pieta…«

»I know, Palmina. And if we are back to our 16th century we will continue to do these concerts, will you?«

»Oh, yes, Palma, my Palma, yes, i will…«

And they continued to see the Peony Gondola Vision and they saw this:

* * *

Now all around the table were very silent as if everyone thinks about the story of Palma and Palmina of the 16th century.

»After a while Antonio Vivaldi said: »You can come and visit our Ospedale de la Pieta. We have a music archive there, a very good and great music library. There are also compositions of Palma il Giovane. We have the original version of the ‚Missa Ospedale de la Pieta‘ he composed for our Orphan children.«

»Oh, Daddy, let us visit the Ospedale over there. They have a lot of music instruments¹ and music score. Oh please, Johann Sebastian Bach«, Johanna Carolina said.

Lisghen and Dorothea smiled looking interested to each other.

»…From an instrument inventory dated 1790 we learn that during that year the Pietà hospital had still “four violins with used bows, four cellos, seventeen violins, two marine trumpets [this may in fact refer to violino in tromba marina], six small violas, two viola d’amore, two mandolines, two lutes, one theorbo, four hunting horns with accessories, two psalteries with harmonic box, two cymbals, three flutes, two big cymbals with spinets, six spinets. «

And as they saw this Peony Gondola vision, sitting together at 23 p.m. in side-by-side in their Peony Gondola, Palmina said: »Palma, can I hear your last music creations again? (52c)…«

»Oh, Yes, the Peony Gondola will play it for you. Listen: «

And the music was like this:

VIDEO: (Violin and Piano 52 a,b,c,d,e – 10 min) – https://youtu.be/c2Ae8sPT7jY

And Palmina saw again the soft flight along the Planet Mars and the moments at the Mars library and they had a lot of Music Visions during this music.

* * *

»Oh, this is interesting! To see what happened with the music and culture live in Venice hundred years after our century, Palma?«

»Yes, really, but we have to be silent and not to talk about what we have seen to any body, you know…«

»I tell no one, Palma…«

»This morning I got a bird message from you Palmina? Did you…?«

»Yes, Palma I sent you a massage, but the extremists, this intrigant people, erased it after I send it. So I asked the birds to bring you my message in bird language…«

»Thank you for your bird message… So lovely. The birds say also that the message you sent was erased and you have been not happy about that, isn’t it, Palmina?«

»Yes, my Palma il Giovane. I am so lucky that we have our Peony Gondola. Thanks to the HEAVEN!«

And Palma and Palmina hugged each other short but tender and both could feel it and both smiled.

»Let us see what happened to the ‚Ospedale de La Pieta Orphan Music School and Orphan Girl’s Orchestra in Venice over hundred years after you have been music teacher there and let us see if they remember my composition which I wrote once for them, the ‚Missa Ospedale de La Pieta di Venice«

»Oh, yes, Palma ‚Missa Ospedale de La Pieta di Venice‘ is composed in G – Magior!!! – This music we performed together with the Orphan’s Girls there in Venice.

✮ ✮ ✮

And now they continued to dream their Peony Gondola Vision and they saw this:

At the place Campo Bandiera e Moro the windows opened suddenly.
»Maestro Bach? Johann Sebastian Bach is here in Venice?“, the people on the place who are looking out of the windows said and where surprised and greeted very happy.

„What a big honour!“, someone said.

„Johann Sebastian Bach in Venezia. Benvegno Maestro Bach!!!“

Antonio Vivaldi said to a little girl: »…Alora, Palmina, subito, subito…come over here…Fast, say to the other girls: they should come back to greet Maestro Johann Sebastian Bach with music – He is back in Venice!!!!…Fast, call them back!!….«.

And the beautiful young girls came after a while, shy laughing, running back the ‚Calle de la Pieta‘ , with their music instruments and formed a little group like a choir at the place »Bandiera e Moro« standing before Bach.

Antonio Vivaldi said: »Come, my angels, now we sing the ‚Welcome Cantata‘ for Maestro Johann Sebastian Bach!«.

»Oooooh, the famous Johann Sebastian Bach with his wife and 3 daughters…« the girls whispered with big open mouth and eyes.

And padre Maestro Antonio Vivaldi raised his hands like as sever choir master and as he saw that all his little girls (and the elder girls also) were ready to sing he gave the signal to start to sing the ‚Welcome Cantata‘ for Johann Sebastian Bach.

And they sung really like angels and Bach smiled and his family beside him – Anna Magdalena, Dorothea, Elisabeth, Johanna Carolina – at the table smiled also lucky and inside their hearts they were a little bit proud about their composer Johann Sebastian.

Especially Johanna Carolina looked very interested how Vivaldi is conducting his girls choir. Yes, she knows now: She wants to learn as fast as she can all in musics: playing instruments, her lute, the violin, and a lot of instruments, composing, making variations about a melody, and so on…

»I want also be a female musician like them. I want to learn everything from my Daddy…«, Johanna Carolina thought secretly.

»Aren’t they like angels? Much better then our boys choir in Leipzig? This clear soft female voices…
»Men should only sing Tenor and Bass and girls should sing Soprano and Alto.«, Bach thought in this moment.

Antonio Vivaldi realized as first musician in Europe that the voices of girls are more exact than the voices of little boys like – also in Leipzig – and they can sing longer, more years than the boys. If the boys are turning slowly to be a man their voice is changing for a long time and is turning to a lower level of pitch and they can not sing Soprano and Alto in the choir any more.

»I can understand why the Austrian People want to hear his choir in Vienna…they are brilliant!
… I have to give Vivaldi a Cantata from me, perhaps they are performing it…« Johann Sebastian whispered to his wife Anna Magdalena Bach.
»Perhaps the ‚Coffee Cantate‘ about our daughter Lieschen (Elisabeth) which wanted to marry her future husband Altnikol.«, Anna Magdalena whispered to him funny smiling.

And after they sung very good for Master Johann Sebastian Bach they said »Welcome Maestro Bach to Venice!!« and they made a respectful gesture and smiled.

»Maestro Bach! Oh, please give us an auto-graph here on our music score!!!«

»Oh, please for me also and, and for my little sister…she loves your compositions so much!
We have no parents and padre Vivaldi is like a father for us…
Now we had the honour to sing for you…
Please sign us an autograph on the music score here…
as remembering for that historic moment in Venice…« an elder girl, which was grown like a young women, said.

»…Yes, here also for me…«,

And the girls wanted to have all a signature, as autograph from the famous Johann Sebastian Bach and forgot that they are all hungry after the long rehearsal in the church Chiesa San Giovanni in Bragora¹).
