182. The Cantico-Hymus
»So beautiful…«, Palmina smiled.
– Your composition, yes it is our Melody, will be played in 400 years…«
And suddenly Palmina and Palma saw on the Heaven 8 Hearts of light. They saw it in their common Peony Gondola Dream from their Peony Gondola.
Sometimes are dreams the only way to communicate between two hearts.
»Oh this is a symbolic message from the 8 Saint Virgins…what this could mean to us«, Palmina tried to explain.
Now they saw the 8 Images of the Book of Change I-Ging.
8 Images of the 5000 Year old Wisdom-Book of Change, I-Ching, YI-King (Djou Yi)
– pictures – 8 Images of the Book of Change –
»Look, the 8 Images, Palma. You composed for me 8 Soli for Pipa describing each Image with music.«
»Which you liked the most?«, Palma smiled and hold her with his arm and gave her a good and warm hold. Palmina liked this and smiled.
»Hmm. I love all 8 creations by..You know, I love your creations so much…But especially I like and love DUI, the Image of the LAKE – Pipa Solo 5«
»So this is your Pipa solo, Lake, Pipa solo Nr.4. So my Saint Cecilia is the representative of the I-Ging IMAGE of LAKE«
Maybe each of the 8 Saint virgins are associated to one of the 8 IMAGES.
»This Images have also their tradition at Dantes Sphers which are also associated to the Angel Choirs: Mother Earth + 7 Dante-Sphers = 8 Angel Choirs of the 9 Choirs (3×3)¹«

»So Maybe each Saint Virgin is also a representative of this Dante Sphers and Angelchoirs, why not…? It could be possible, hm?«
»«the 8 images are also similar to the 8 images of the traditional psalm 104 the psalm of creation.«
»Wow, Palma, my Palma, my Painter, you know so much things,…«, Palmina said being proud on his Palma il Giovane and she put carefully her head on Palmas right side and he could feel her.
»You know, as you made your concert tour abroad, I spoke long with Master Lao at the Gardens of the Giudecca Island in Venice as I gave my painting lessons to the family of princess Lin and its artists painters poets musicians.
They were so interested in all about European culture and they showed me their culture, their music, their philosophy, the principle of the »The Creative« and »Receptive«.
And we discovered that the ancient neumes of the Gregorianic music notations system which a few monks are using to sing and to write music at the monastery at the Le Zitelle, also on Giudecca Island, have similarities to the principles of the Ying and Yang lines of the 8 Images of the 5000 year old Book of Change, the I-Ging.

»Oh, yes I know, Palma, you made good speech years ago at the Venice Titian Art Gallery to this honour guests of the Republic of Venice…I was so proud of you, Palma, doing this.«, Palmina said fast like a little yellow sweet bird.
»…and you played 40 minutes of my 8 Soli for Pipa…so beautiful, I love it Palmina. It inspired me to compose also a second instrumental part for Viola«, Palma added like an old Master.
Palmina was so lucky about this beautiful remembering that she smiled very strong and lovely.
Palma loved it to see her so lucky about spiritual thinks like art and philosophy.
Palmina tried to find the music score with the 8 Soli Pipa and as she searched she found something interesting:
picture 3 – Palma’s »Cantico Hymnus« (I-Ging Neums) and its relations to old western (Europe) and old eastern traditions (Asia) ☰ ☵ ☴ ☳ ☱ ☲ ☷ ☶
»Oh, what is that, Palma? This seems to be the Melody you composed for me in my Pipa solo 5 at the end of the composition«
»Yes, Palmina. This is the Melody – I made this sheet for a speech to explain the relation to old European and old Asian traditions in music.«
Palmina studied the sheet of paper very interested. Yes, Palmina loves to study Palma’s compositions.
»This is the Gregorianic Notation tradition. The Monks are singing after these old music notation systems their old songs!«, Palmina said.
Palmina often could hear the Jesuits Monks singing their monk music which is a very, very old music.
Often Palmina asked a monk to explain her how to read this music and Palmina tried to play it a little bit on her Lute and her Table Organ in her own flat at Giudecca Island.
»Hm….Scandicus, Torculus – a low note, a high note and a low note…interesting… and here the lines of Khan: ying-yang-ying …and the Images from the text of the Cantico delle Creature »SUN, MOON, stars and WIND and… and in the 2nd line: the 8 Images: HEAVEN WATER THUNDER…
Oh this is our Spring-Melody…Palma I love you!«
And Palmina put her arms around Palma and Palma felt like a father for her although Palmina and Palma have only a few years difference.
As she was 2 years old baby Palma hold her the first time in his arms at the »Chiesa san Salvadtor«¹ in Venice in the year 1560 at the painting session with Master Titian while Palma was only a 12 years old young student of the famous Titian School. But something connected them… art, music, higher dimension love.

But Palma was so lucky that she loves his Melody and he took his Mandolin and looked Palmina soft in her eyes.
Palmina looked also into Palma’s eyes and she knows now: He wants now to say with this music something tender to her, something like »I like you – I love you – I never stop thinking on you, my Pigeon!«
Palmina smiled expecting Palma’s wordless love declaration:
Palma played a little variation about this »Cantico-Hymnus« and Palma called this composition for Mandolin »Spring-Melody-Hymnus«.

Palmina looked so beautiful and her cheeks seemed to have now decently a little bit red colour and she smiled and looked at Palma.
She knows and feels: He heart is beating for her.
After she listened this Mandolin solo in their Peony Gondola she gave Palma a tender kiss on his cheek. Palma was lucky.
Now they put both their heads together sitting side by side in their soft seats of the Peony Gondola and they heart the »Marco Polo Variation«
which is a short Variation of that »Cantico Hymnus«.
They heart Palma playing in his heart on a music instrument called »Piano« which is unknown in the 16 century and the heart dreaming now this Pipa solo, played on this »Piano« for Palmina and is was like that:

Note: The ancient music neumes music notation system did not define the exact intervals of a »Neume«, in our case 8 »3-Ton-Neumes«.
»A neume (/ˈnjuːm/; sometimes spelled neum) is the basic element of Western and Eastern systems of musical notation prior to the invention of five-line staff notation. The word entered the English language in the Middle English forms „newme“, „nevme“, „neme“ in the 15th century, from the Middle French „neume“, in turn from either medieval Latin „pneuma“ or „neuma“, the former either from ancient Greek πνεῦμα pneuma („breath“) or νεῦμα neuma („sign“), or else directly from Greek as a corruption or an adaptation of the former.
The earliest neumes were inflective marks that indicated the general shape but not necessarily the exact notes or rhythms to be sung. Later developments included the use of heightened neumes that showed the relative pitches between neumes, and the creation of a four-line musical staff that identified particular pitches. Neumes do not generally indicate rhythm, but additional symbols were sometimes juxtaposed with neumes to indicate changes in articulation, duration, or tempo. Neumatic notation was later used in medieval music to indicate certain patterns of rhythm called rhythmic modes, and eventually evolved into modern musical notation. Neumatic notation remains standard in modern editions of plainchant. «
