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

After Cousine Mihaela sung so beautiful her Sopran Aria, Master Gabrieli stood up from the Organ to conduct several Choirs.

They sung also a composition of Gabrieli composed for several choirs and instrument groups, standing at different positions in the Church Basilica San Marco in Venice.

»It sounds to be like in heaven!«, Giulia, Palma’s younger daughter said.
Palma was lucky that his daughter’s are interested in arts and music. Giulia is also making progress in her study of painting in the Titian academy.
Giulia is finishing Palma’s painting with landscapes, trees, the buildings etc… in the background part of his paintings.
Palma smiled to his Giulia proud.

From all directions, from up left and from up right, there is coming choir- and ensemble music.

»Did Master Gabrieli compose this music piece for 4 choirs, standing on 4 different positions in our golden Basilica?«, Palma thought and looked around the golden Basilica to find the place where the musicians are making wonderful music.

During the music he begun to think about the recent private concert in Palma’s flat with its big private concert hall: »Hm, Heinrich Schütz could play the Harpsichord at this concert… Hm, hm, and Palmina could play the Lute part…
…at the actual performance of Claudio Monteverdi’s¹) L’Orfeo²) in our palace on San Marco Place, in the 2nd floor.
There will be special honour guests of our republic of Venice.
Hm, hm, hm,… and if Claudio Monteverdi says that he is a brilliant musician, then I can tell this positive words about Schütz as musician to Master Gabrieli at our next tea time meeting…«, Palma thought silent and smiled.

Palmina smiled because she also thinks »That is a good idea, Palma…«

»..how can I make Heinrich Schütz to be not only Master Gabrieli’s music student, but to be his Master Student?
Maybe with this idea…!«, Palma il Giovane thought.

There are a lot of music students coming with money to study in Venice, to study music or to study painting; but to be a Master student, this is a big privilege.

You have not only to be a very, very good music student, you have to be also choosen by the Master himself.

* * *

As they saw this Peony Gondola Vision, Palmina and Palma sat beside in the Peony Gondola at 23 p.m.

Palma could feel that Palmina’s left hand ring finger is painful because of doing rehearsal so much.

Palma took her left hand and kissed her tender and soft to heal her hand and her ring finger.

Palmina smiled shy and her pain was gone.

»Palmina?«

»Hm?«

»You are preparing a new concert?«

»Yes, Palma, my Master. I want also to play a composition of you in my next concert and I send you a messenger to inform you.
Hm, but it seems that the Administrators of the church of social media have stolen my letter to you…«

»Palmina…« and he kissed her hand again soft and tender, full of love and light, full of golden light, »…in my heart I felt your positive thoughts towards me. In the nature a little bird sung a melody from you and I listened to the bird lucky. I am very lucky that you want to play a composition of me.«

»…you remembered that Master Lao said to you 1000 years ago that we will met again… I give you from now on your old name Mia. I was your Master once and I was your…«

Palmina smiled and hugged suddenly his old Master and said with her soft voice:
»Oh, Master. We have now the chance to work together in inspirative way as artists and you have given me back my old name: Mia«

»Yes, Mia!
Si certo, mia dolcissima Mia!«

»Oh, my old Master P…«

»Psst, don’t say my name!«, Palma said fast.

»Oh, wo de dà shi G…«

»Psst, don’t say my name!«, Palma said also fast.

»Oh, mio maestro Palma il Giovane!«

And Palma hugged her now stronger and both had tears in their eyes.

Now they saw suddenly Master Lao on heaven and he showed them a interesting Vision about the century of Mia (before Lao tze came to the West); the moment as Xuan Ming was choosen as Master Student of Lao tse and his personal writing-secretary and his personal taking-care-of him-secretary:

And they saw suddenly a Vision:

¹) Claudio Monteverdi (1567 – 1643) – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claudio_Monteverdi

»Claudio Giovanni Antonio Monteverdi (15 May 1567 (baptized) – 29 November 1643) was an Italian composer, string player and choirmaster. A composer of both secular and sacred music, and a pioneer in the development of opera, he is considered a crucial transitional figure between the Renaissance and the Baroque periods of music history.«

»[…] Monteverdi’s early musical training, or evidence that (as is sometimes claimed) he was a member of the Cathedral choir […]. Monteverdi’s first published work, a set of motets, Sacrae cantiunculae (Sacred Songs) for three voices, was issued in VENICE in 1582, when he was only fifteen years old.«

²) »L’Orfeo – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%27Orfeo
L’Orfeo, sometimes called La favola d’Orfeo [la ˈfaːvola dorˈfɛːo], is a late Renaissance/early Baroque favola in musica, or opera, by Claudio Monteverdi, with a libretto by Alessandro Striggio. It is based on the Greek legend of Orpheus, and tells the story of his descent to Hades and his fruitless attempt to bring his dead bride Eurydice back to the living world. It was written in 1607 for a court performance during the annual Carnival at Mantua. While Jacopo Peri’s Dafne is generally recognised as the first work in the opera genre, and the earliest surviving opera is Peri’s Euridice, L’Orfeo is the earliest that is still regularly performed.«

Palmina could read Palma’s thoughts and smiled shy as she heard his thoughts.

»…and,yes, and maybe, later, he becomes the organist of the Basilica San Marco as his master student…And if Crezia and Henricus – who knows – are married and have children they should call them Andriana and Giacomo…«

Palmina smiled and Crezia smiled also shy as if she could feel what Palma il Giovane was thinking about Crezia’s future in this moment.

»I can help him to be the Master student of Giovanni Gabrieli, I know Master Gabrieli very well… he often comes to have tea with us…
I know now he is searching such a talented student like Heinrich Schütz…if he comes to us for tea time I can speak with Giovanni….«

Palma looked straight ahead, looking inside, thinking how to organise this…

* * *

And as they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina put her head again on Palma’s side and she looked up to Palma and said:

»Palma?«

»Hm?…«

»Oh can you play this Aria for me on your Mandolin as a little solo…Like once…«
Palma remembered the moment and smiled.

After a while he took his little Mandolin and started to play for her, for his eternal saint spirit Pigeon:

Palmina’s eyes shined and she smiled very lucky and the music was like that.
And her cheeks turned light red, innocent like once, years ago.
And the music was like that:

After they saw this music Peony Gondola Vision they continued to dream:

* * *

 

At Epiphany, the 6th of January they reached with their Peony Gondola the San Marco Place, they went over the long place to go in the Basilica San Marco.

A lot of people, living in Venice are invited to attend this annual feast celebration on 6th of January, even if they are from an other cultural tradition.
The feast of the traditional Epiphany feast is about the 3 holy kings, which had not been Christians or Catholics.

Also the Ming Dynasty Chinese People are here to show their respect to the culture of the republic of Venice.

During the annuals traditional Christmas ceremony from the left side, up at the choir, Palma’s Cousine Mihaela stood with a music score in her hand.

She will sing today the Aria „Benedictus“ composed by Giacomo Palma il Giovane.

This time Palmina had nothing to play in the church with her lute, now they can listen to the music and enjoy the magic moment, sitting beside her Palma.

On the Organ Master Giovanni Gabrieli is sitting, a famous world wide known composer. organist and Choir Master of the Basilica San Marco.
And now he gives the sign to start the music composition of Palma.

Mihaela sung very beautiful and full of heart.
Palma looked up to her cousin and was proud on her.
Palmina smiled also, sitting on Palma’s right side and was proud of her Palma, the most famous painter in Venice , her composer, her writer, her astronomer, her philosopher, her director of the famous Venice Titian School.
On the left side was sitting Crezia and her sister Giulia.

Giulia listened to the music very interested and she was also proud of her daddy Palma and his cousine Mihaela.
Crezia, which was the elder sister, looked also short shy to a man, also sitting in this golden church.

Giulia observed this. The young man was also smiling back shy to Crezia. He is nearly in the age of Crezia.
The man was the new music student Heinrich Schütz¹) from Germany.

Today he was visiting Palma’s flat in the 2nd floor on the San Marco Place to have tea time with Palma’s family:

Signore Schütz will study for 3 years in Venice at Master Giovanni Gabrieli ²).
At first he will play the Harpsicord at the Venice Titian Art Gallery, together with the most famous musicians of Venice – a lot of them are known in the whole world.
It is a big honour to play as student with these famous artists here in Venice in the Venice-Titian-Art-Gallery.

Signore Schütz is coming from Germany and he wants to bring the Venetian music tradition to Germany.

Palma smiled as he saw how lucky his daughter Crezia is looking in the direction to Signore Schütz.
At tea he also felt that there is a special harmony between them.
»Maybe, who knows…«, Palma thought silent, »…he will stay not only for 3 years here in Venice. Master Gabrieli is searching for a Master Student…
and maybe he and Crezia, hm, two artists…she is my painting student and he the musician.
He is a Sympathetic young men who would become my sun-in-law.
Hm…why not…he is a good composer and musician…he will save the Venetian music tradition….«

The Original Version of this »Benedictus« Aria is for Sopran, Violin and Viola and Choir. ( There is also an additionally Mandolin part).
