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.
