302. The golden light inspiration for the painting at frari church

302. The golden light inspiration for the painting at frari church

And after they saw this Peony Gondola Vision, they saw, this:

* * *

The next day Palma waited in the morning at the little San Saba Chapel, as he continued to paint on his paintings there.

And his Pigeon came flying soft and smiling. Yes, she is his sunshine in the morning. Her smile and her fresh little white, fine breads give an inspiration to go on with his painting and composing artwork.

During this morning a little choir and instrumental group of the big famous girl“s and female La Pieta Choir and Orchestra made a little rehearsal in the Chiesa Sant‘ Antonin.
Palma lloked sometimes down from his scafolding to see the loveky girls singimg.
„Oh, Maestro Giacomo Palma il Giovane! When we will get a new composition from you!“ , a little girl wanted friendly and inoccently know.

* * *

  Later at midday Palmina came again, as she finished  her rehearsal at home, she brought some food and played for Palma il Giovane on her lutes.

Palma painted also on the huge painting which is direct in front of the half circled window.

„Look, Palmina. Through this window  the daylight comes in a special way and I have to fit my colours after the light spectrum of its light.“
„Oh, I see Palma. The colours of the white daylight are different at different places. In this chapel it is different from the light in the chiesa Frari…“
„Yes, Palmina….you understand my work very well   “
And at the early evening Palmina came after her Solo concert at the Doges Palace to look after Master Palma il Giovane.
The daylight was not darkblue because it was not late today.
As Palmina came up with her lantern and her music instrument Palma was still painting and not sleeping.
Now again they where alone in the church.
Palmina played, Palma painted.
Suddenly there was again the golden light between Palma and Palmina.
Palma looked deep in the heaven of inspiration.
„I have to paint this golden light in my huge painting  at the chiesa Frari!“ Palma whispered suddenly.

He saw the Saint of Alexandria on a vision and he decided to go now to the Church Frari to continue to paint on it.
Palmina followed the way to the Gondola. Both entered the Gondola at the Riviera de la Pieta and inside Palmina played very beautiful for Palma.
Slowly the evening was coming and Venice looked this evening so beautiful during the colourful sunset. All the small lanterns at the Gondolas and at the windows on the left and right side.
Right they passed the San Marco Place. Some candels seemed to burn at the huge Dodge“s Palace.
Left, far away, there are also a few candle lights at the La Zitelle where the protected girls are sleeping.
The Gondola continued to move along the Canale Grande.
Slowly the stars of Venice were visible.
During the music Palma saw in his Vision the Saint of Alexandria which observed also the stars as first female astronomer. He saw that she wanted to bring peace between the different religions in Alexandria but some men wanted to attack her life…
He saw the secrets of the Saint of Alexandria.
Palmina smiled and observed Palminas eyes smiling. It was if these visions are coming directly from Palmina’s heartfelt lute playing – a miracle.

Later, after they entered the huge frarii church, where Master Titian’s famous ‚Assunta Maria‘ is,  Palma painted the golden light at his on painting at the left side, working at the scafolding and Palmina holds the lanterns for him so he could see his painting brush and painting.
Palmina understood: Palma is inspired and has to do his work now, not later.

  During they did this Palma had a music inspiration and the music they dreamed was like that:

301. Palma’s drawing inspiration during music listening

301. Palma’s drawing inspiration during music listening

»Heaven, yes heaven! I have to paint here over the main painting of this San Saba Chapel a scene from heaven….«

Now Palma felt inspired to draw an inspiration on a paper.
He lit his lantern and some candles he used to paint at evening there in the church.

Palmina could feel that he is inspired and started to support him with playing on her lutes.

»Yes, this will be in the middle above in the half circled painting…«, Palma whispering into Palmina’s ear.

They are completely alone in this Church San Antonin in Venice.
And no one could see what they are doing up there on the wide scaffolding under the half-circled window.

Palmina smiled and looked what Palma had created.
She tries to understand how the painting should look like if it is complete.

»This is only a section of the painting…the middle part…here… this should be there«.
Palma stood up and went carefully to the position where the painting should be.

Now Palmina understood also that Palma will paint this year longer in the chapel because he wants to draw the heaven he saw now in the vision.

»Woooh, so great…and,and… here you painted a Saint Spirit Pigeon!!! Isn’t it Palma?«

»Yes, my Pigeon. The Pigeon which brings the saint spirit! And here I will paint the saint Pigeon and the saint Pigeon only we both can see if we are here at the scaffolding and no one who stands down on earth, if the scaffolding is removed will see our saint spirit pigeon. Pssst. (only if a pigeon or angels lands out there at the window she can see the painted saint spirit pigeon) This Is Our secret, Pssst…«, Palma whispered and he looked at his drawing and he was holding the lantern a little bit nearer to see it better.

Palmina lifted also her lantern and looked interested. Both were sitting on their knees and looking at the place in the huge half circle where the painting in orange colours, the colour of enlightenment and heaven will be painted soon by the well known Palma il Giovane.

So this means every evening when Palmina finished her evening concert in the Doge’s Palace where she plays a Lute solo for the international honour guests of the Republic of Venice, she can walk directly her way to the Chiesa Sant‘ Antonin where Palma is the whole day working on the big paintings of the San Saba chapel (on his huge confortable scaffolding).

Yes, this she realized without saying a word and she smiled very strong.
She looked shy on the wooden floor of the scaffolding then she looked up to Palma without moving her head.

picture 3 - Overview - »Campo Bandiera et Moro« (Palmina's Home), Chiesa »San Antonin« (Palma's paintings), The Atelier at the Fondamenta di Furlani and the »Scuola«.png

picture 3 – Overview – »Campo Bandiera e Moro« (Palmina’s Home), Chiesa »San Antonin« (Palma’s paintings), The Atelier at the Fondamenta di Furlani (where Palma also painted Palmina as model) and the »Scuola«

»I will be there every time I have time after the concert Palma…«, she told him with her heart.

And they thanked the heaven for all that art inspirations in music and painting and they thanked the Saint Virgin, they thanked Santa Lucia who send the saint of music into Palma’s difficult live.
And suddenly Palma had a great idea that her father would not be angry because Palma is painting so long in the near area of Palma’s flat at the baker’s shop.

picture 4 - Palma's fast drawing (right side up) on a paper which has still a painting on it. It was the first inspiration for the painting »Miracolo del fornaio«- Palma il Giovane (1593).jpg

picture 4 – Palma’s fast drawing (right side up) on a paper which has still a painting on it. It was the first inspiration for the painting »Miracolo del fornaio«- Palma il Giovane (1593)

»Look, I paint the Saint Saba here. The Miracle which happened at your bakery shop long ago…«

Palma drew fast and he used a drawing on which  he drew the saint virgin with her baby for an other painting.
He painted the scene of the »Miracolo del fornaio«
Palmina started again to play for him and he saw the whole painting like that in a vision.

After the tradition of Master Titian the painting has to be painted only in white colours and later the colours are painted on that white oil painting.

Palma smiled during he was drawing and she could also see in a vision with Palma that Palma will use Palmina’s father as model for the painting (the baker at left)

picture 5 - black white photograph of painting »Miracolo del fornaio«- Palma il Giovane (1593).jpg

picture 5 – black white photograph of painting »Miracolo del fornaio«- Palma il Giovane (1593), left wall in the San Saba Chapel

Palmina understood also that if the Syrian pilgrims will came to Venice very often, the bakery shop will get a big business in the future and Palmina’s father will do nothing against this painting art project.
Also the Republic of Venice wants to have the saint bones of San Saba here in Venice if the miracle is documented and painted by the famous painter Palma il Giovane of Venice.

»Oh, my Pigeon you are inspiring me so much, my Santa Cecilia, my Pigeon, my yellow canary bird…«, Palma whispered into Palmina’s ear

»Oh, Palma I love to play your music creations.
My composer, my writer, my painter…«, Palmina whispered Palma in his ear.

300. A secret music evening in Venice

And Palma put on his little working table (it was in the year 1593, not 1596) an aditional instrumental part music score to the composition „Golden Proportion“ beside all the paint brushes and colour glasses.

During he was painting on the scaffolding in the San Saba Chappell (which is in the Chiesa San Antonin)
Palmina came today again to bring him food and breads.

As she saw the music score she smiled silent.
Then she looked up to the scaffolding.
She could not see him. So she took her lantern and went the steps up in the saint Saba chappell.
The soft dark blue light from the window up at the right side made a little bit light up there where Palma il Giovane was sleeping.
Silent she put the lantern down, took het lute and started to play Palma’s composition very tender and soft.
Palma heard this and dreamed to fly with the Peony Gondola with Palmina through the heaven of inspiration. She appeard as Saint Cecilia and played for him on her music instrument.
Palmina smiled because she could read in his heart and could see his music dreaming

And they saw all the Landscapes flying over Planet Mars and Palma was also inspired to write remembering about his Uncle. Some Landscapes look like buildings. This they saw in their music Peony Gondola Dream at 23 p.m.
It felt like flying over Mars with the so called »Dragonfly«¹)

_____________
¹) A flying vehicle for 2 persons which was constructed to fly over Planet Mars in a speed of 200 km/h.

»Palma?«

»Hm?«

»Can I have the music score of the 5-beat creation, the golden Proportion music (3:2) …?«
»Oh yes, my Pigeon. Here is the music score…«

Palmina smiled and was very lucky and she hugged Palma with her heart and again there was the golden light heart – to heart – connection between them.

Palma smiled also.

And they remembered all the days as Palmina came with her basket with fresh bread or food from the Dogan’s Palace where Palmina played often Lute solo concerts for the international honour guests of the Republic of Venice, sometimes with her lantern and with her music instrument, her lute.

Every time Palma il Giovane painted in the church he put on his working table
a music score for Palmina.

Often she comes at Palma’s painting working place and her first look was on the little working table where also a lot of glass with colours and paint brushes are placed.

And every time she smiled if she saw a new composition for her waiting to be played by her on that table.

Sometimes she played it directly in the church – Palma’s ear and heart was in such moments direct with Palmina.
Palma was lucky and he followed every tone she played.

And Sometimes she did rehearsal it in her little room in the ‚Calle de la Pieta‘.

 

picture 2 - Square_San_Marko_in_Venice_at_night_light.jpg
picture 2 – Doge’s Palace in Venice (left) where Palmina performed often Palma’s music creations for her

Sometimes she performed it then at the evening concert in the Doge’s Palace on San Marco Place.
During this concerts Palma could feel that. He could feel that she was performing his music creation, he felt it deep in his heart, even he was painting with a lantern or sleeping at the painting scaffolding in the church even he is sleeping in his little bed, he could feel her heartfelt music playing and smiled and was lucky.

Very often Palmina came with her Lute at that Church Chiesa San Antonin to play his new composition and Palma was very lucky to hear his new creation played by her and he painted during this very happy.
So in this way Palmina inspired Palma to compose little creations for her and there was no day without a new fresh composed music score, waiting on the working table beside the bottles with colours and several fine paintbrush.

*) There was a scaffolding in the year 1596 on the left side on which Palma was working on the half-circle paintings till the evening. Palmina came with a lantern to bring him light and to play soft lute music for him (often she surprised him with his own music compositions)

✮ ✮ ✮

During they saw this Peony Gondola Vision a music creation comes from Palma’s heart to describe this Vision of the year 1596.

And Palmina put her head to Palma’s side and they listened to the music and they saw all this secret music moments and it was like that:

VIDEO:Violin and Piano (60b): https://youtu.be/rRwEHZS4Xrg

»Oh, Palma, it is composed in the 5/4 beat isn’t it?«

»Yes it symbolizes the golden proportion¹) in art. I use it in my Paintings (a:b = b : (a+b) – The smaller (a) is in relation to the bigger (b) like the bigger (b) to whole (a+b)«

»Oh, 5 beats per bar as golden proportion. Woooh, Palma, that is an amazing music idea!!!«

______________________________
¹) Golden Proportion ( „golden ratio“) in Mathematics and Art – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio

»In MATHEMATICS, two quantities are in the golden ratio if their ratio is the same as the ratio of their sum to the larger of the two quantities. The figure on the right illustrates the geometric relationship. «

in ART:
» The golden ratio is also called the golden mean or golden section (Latin: sectio aurea). Other names include extreme and mean ratio, medial section, divine proportion, divine section (Latin: sectio divina), golden proportion, golden cut,and golden number.

Mathematicians since Euclid have studied the properties of the golden ratio, including its appearance in the dimensions of a regular pentagon and in a golden rectangle, which may be cut into a square and a smaller rectangle with the same aspect ratio. The golden ratio has also been used to analyze the proportions of natural objects as well as man-made systems such as financial markets, in some cases based on dubious fits to data.[9] The golden ratio appears in some patterns in nature, including the spiral arrangement of leaves and other plant parts.

Some twentieth-century artists and architects (see also art and architecture in the earlier centuries), including Le Corbusier and Salvador Dalí (Titian, Palma il Giovane, Johann Sebastian Bach), have proportioned their works to approximate the golden ratio—especially in the form of the golden rectangle, in which the ratio of the longer side to the shorter is the golden ratio—believing this proportion to be aesthetically pleasing. «

✮ ✮ ✮

After they listened to the music they continued to dream their Peony Gondola Vision and it was like that:

✮ ✮ ✮

Yes, she played his music creation for him with all her heart and Palma got more power to paint.

If she played he could feel her heartfelt personal dedication. It seems that she is hugging his heart with her music performance and Palma could feel it even they get a distance of thousands of miles / kilometers.

If they are not alone and some Titian Art School students are assisting Palma with painting work they were carefully that no one could realize that Palma and Palmina are looking and smiling at each other.
In such moments Palmina played and smiled. And Palma could feel her smile without looking in her direction and Palma smiled also secretly during he was painting on his huge painting artwork.
Also the other students painted better and are more concentrated if Palmina was there and playing on her Lute.

✮ ✮ ✮

And after that Peony Gondola Vision Palmina and Palma dreamed a dreaming music like to fly together over the surface of Planet Mars and the dreaming music was like that:

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:

VIDEO: Violin and Piano (59d) – https://youtu.be/G_kx8dVLLqY

✮ ✮ ✮

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:

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.

¹) Bach’s Kyrie–Gloria masses, BWV 233–236 – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyrie%E2%80%93Gloria_masses,_BWV_233%E2%80%93236#BWV_234

»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.«

²) Franz Anton von Sporck – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franz_Anton_von_Sporck

»Franz Anton von Sporck, Count (Franz Anton Reichsgraf von Sporck in German, František Antonín hrabě Špork in Czech) (born 9 March 1662 in Lysá nad Labem or Heřmanův Městec; died 30 March 1738 in Lysá nad Labem) was a German-speaking literatus and patron of the arts who lived in the province of Bohemia in what is now the Czech Republic. He was one of the most notable cultural and intellectual figures in central Europe in the early 18th century. «

»…attracting some of the most prominent singers in Italy to Prague, and used Antonio Vivaldi as a source of repertory and singers. VIVALDI himself visited Prague in the early 1730s as a result of his connections with the Sporck theater. Many creative operatic works were first performed in the Sporck theater, including the first opera to use the original settings and character names from the tradition of Don Juan dramatizations:«

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 – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Byrd

»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…«

»…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.
