»And now we can see the famous paintings by Giacomo Palma il Giovane…«

And the honour guests of the Republic of Venice could now see the huge paintings of Giacomo Palma il Giovane.

»Can I have an autograph, please Maestro Diacomo…«

»Oh, Giacomo with G… my Name starts with a G.«, Palma said and gave some autographs to the interested people.

And they looked now at the paintings of G – iacomo Palma il Giovane:

And after they saw this beautiful Peony Gondola Vision at 23 o clock p.m. Palma said:
»Palmina?«

»Hm?«

»Today, a bird sung so beautiful this morning as I looked out of the window…
The bird sung very soft so that only I could hear his message. He sung although it was very dark in the early morning…Did you…?«

»Yes, I know, this bird sung to bring you my message: I send you today to your name day my best wishes…
Your name starts with G. Your name is G….«

And Palma took Palmina’s hands and kissed them.
»Oh, thank you my Pigeon….
So talented hands…

always doing rehearsing and playing so much for the republic at the Palazzo Ducale…
…baci, baci, qīnqīn…now your hands and fingers are healed by the golden light… «

And Palmina smiled and it felt for her if she is surrounded by hundreds of peony flowers and said sweet:

»Oh, Palma…, my Palma, my painter, my composer, did you wrote a copy of your new »Golden Light« creation?«

And Palma continued to kiss tender and soft her talented hands to heal her and with one hand he took his music score beside the soft Peony Gondola seat and gave her the music score.

And Palmina smiled much stronger and much happier.

»Woooh, so fast…the whole music score !!!
Oh, Thank you Palma!…«

»…I have to thank you that you played so beautiful in the Palazzo Ducale…

Not only this evening! Also all the years as I was painting in the Palazzo Ducale at the huge paintings there.

Your Lute music made me so strong and inspired and you brought me allways fresh bread and food from the kitchen of the Palazzo Ducale.

My paintings would not have this success if there was not your music playing directly to my heart, Palmina«

Palmina smiled and was lucky about this friendly words.

Yes Palmina supported Palma secretly with her talent only a few musicians have developed.

The most only play on their instrument, but Palmina radiates golden light.
Palmina hugged Palma smiling and gave him a tender cheek kiss.

     Picture –  Palmina will play Palma’s composition at her concert at the Doge’s Palace.

„Can I have the music score if this Saint of Alexandria Inspiration? Hmm, it is the music to this painting, here in the frari church, isn’t it…“

„Yes,  I will write a copy for you and give it on my working table…“

Palmina smiled very lucky.

And  Palmina gave Palma a tender kiss on the right cheek and over his left eye and, yes, Palma could feel it during his dreams and visions and smiled.
And after they saw this Peony Gondola Music Vision they saw this:

   * * *

Palmina did rehearsal today the whole day and could not bring fresh bread in the morning.

So Palma took his way to the backery shop to buy 8 fresh little fine breads.
He smiled as her colleague in the shop said: „Oh, Meastro Palma il Giovane, Singnorina Palmina prepared this little breakfast basked for you. She is doing her reharsal for the big concert in the Doges’s Palace at San Marco Place.

Palma thanked friendly and went now to his painting working place at the chiesa frari, which is a long walk over the Rialto Bridge.
Sometimes, on other days, he mets Palmina playing at the market there,  in front of the little church, at the Rialto bridge, playing her lute and selling fresh breads.
Today she is not there. Palma looked at the 24 h hour clock of the little church.
Palma was looking forward to see her at the concert.
Palma went to the frari church to continue painting the golden light on the huge painting of the saint of Alexandria.

* * *

Later, at the concert Palmina announced suddenly that she will play the Lute solo Nr. 4 about the Image of THUNDER (zhen 卦震)
„Today I will also play a composition THUNDER from the composer Maestro Palma il Giovane.“
Palma was lucky and Palmina played.
The golden light was now in the hall which is also decorated with huge paintings by Palma il Giovane.

The chinese honour guests, also Master Lao from Giudecca island know the meaning of the 8 Image of the I-Ging very well and smiled also nodding.

And now the birth of the melody wich is a symbol of their music love inspiration Palmina played with her lute along the 11 min performance:

And after this Pipa solo Nr. 5 of the „8 Soli for Pipa“ the special guests of the Republic of Venice applauded happy, especially the Chinese people who are living now in the gardens of Giudecca Island.
They will soon invite also to a chinese concert with asian music instruments  at Giudecca and Princess Lin, which Palma painted with all the other princess in white cloth once very beautifully, will play with her students and colleagues.

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.

picture 1 - Palma's inspiration fast drawing about the HEAVEN for the San Saba Chapel at Chiesa Sant' Antonin Venice.jpg

»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.

picture 2 - black white fotograph of Palma's inspiration fast drawing about the HEAVEN for the San Saba Chapel at Chiesa Sant' Antonin Venice.jpg

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), 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.

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.

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.

01-04 picture – Ave Verum (San Marco – Venezia) by Gerald Spitzner (facimile)

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.

»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:«

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…«

»…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

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:

VIDEO: (Violin and Piano (54d) https://youtu.be/UjVLTwQ5uOo


»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:

LINK: https://unclewillybacktoearth.wordpress.com/2019/10/29/10-a-trip-to-the-2nd-sun

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.
