And she continued to write the letter like that:
* * *
»…Music can heal the soul and body,
I think every Artist has the mission to lead man back to his spiritual identity.
I will write a copy of the newest creation and give it to you as soon as it is ready.
I feel like you and I send you also tender kisses and hugs.
Often I feel that you are playing on your music instrument and smiling and thinking on me.
I wish you also a happy new year, My Pigeon, my Santa Cecilia
Your Palma il Giovane,
your composer, your painter, your writer, your astronomer, your old and deep love and Master«

Santa Lucia appeared at the Sky and transformed into princess Miao Shan, holing her hands like praying:
»Palma, Palmina, Henricus Sagittarius – Signore Heinrich Schütz from Germany will come to Venice.
He will study at Master Gabrieli and he will keep the old Venetian Music tradition.
Although he is from the Protestantic Religion he will learn in the Catholic dominated Venice – A Peace project of Exchange between different traditions and religions.
In the last years catholic and Lutherian fight against each other as enemy, but here in the Venice there is the beginning of peace and friendship.
He has not so long time, Master Gabrieli is slowly feeling weak and he needs a Master Student: Heinrich Schütz could be it.
Palma, help him to get his Master Student.Like the Heaven helped you to help Master Titian in his last 3 years…«
Princess Miao Shan smiled to Palma and Palma smiled also.
Now Lao Tze said with a quiet voice:
»…And think on the possibility that if you will be later an important composer in music history you need his artworks to study them.
He will be the bridge from the Venetian Tradition to your future artwork, Palma.«
Palma looked interested and nodded respectfully and friendly.
His music will sound like that in the future:
And now a lot of angels with music instruments came down from the heaven, sitting on the ping white clouds and started to play a music:
And they suddenly saw this music vision:
Heinrich Schütz – Alleluia Lobet den Herren – Capriccio Stravagante – Vox Luminis – Sempé
