246. Bach’s first secret Inspiration in Arnstadt

246. Bach’s first secret Inspiration in Arnstadt

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

* * *

After 5 weeks a young handsome 18 year old man now stepped in this bakery shop beside the church (Today the Johann Sebatian Bach Church) in Arnstadt and wanted to buy some bread. The bakers daughter was 21 year old, 3 years elder then this man.
Although she did not know that he is the famous Johann Sebastian Bach she was nevertheless very lucky smiling and very friendly as she saw him the first time.
»I take this…and….please I take this little bread, and….could I have this nice little fine fresh breads over there….«
»Of course Sir…«, she said very lucky because he was interested in her new Italian creation.
»…Is this a special creation, this fine bread?«
»Oh, yes, it is a special old baker’s creation from Venice…It was invented by the secret love of the famous painter Palma il Giovane, the Master scholar of Master Titian. She played lute like me…her name was Palmina Albina…«
Johann Sebastian stopped moving as he took the fine white fresh bread in his hands and she was also holding also the same piece with her hands and she smiled. Now he looked up to see her face and to see her eyes, so he realized that she
wear a yellow white traditional cloth.
»Oh, you are a musician! You play the lute…?«, he asked.
»Yes, I studied all the old masters from the 16th century till now and I can play the harpsichord. My mother has one at home…and, and, and I sing Soprano very well..«, she said like an innocent little girl although she was 21 years old.
»5 Weeks ago a great musician played on our new organ as opening concert. He
played so wonderfully. I felt in love but I had never seen him again.«
Johann Sebastian Bach smiled and looked for a long while into her direction. Yes, they are completely alone in this moment, in this little fine bakery shop at Arnstadt beside the church where Bach played.
»Can I have a fresh coffee?«, the young famous organ virtuosi said.
»Of course, sir, please, take a seat over there on the little table I will cook for you fresh coffee«.
Johann Sebastian sat down to the table and felt very inspired.
Inside his heart he heart a storm of music and sound. At this moment something changed inside his heart. Till today Bach wanted only to be a famous Violinist, a famous Organist and a famous harpsichord player.
But now he hears music in his heart and now in this moment he would like to compose a little piece for lute maybe a „Praeludium in C-Major“.
Johann Sebastian Bach understood: Palmina did not only do her Job as baker to make traditional bread every day, SHE CREATED A NEW CREATION: The little fine white fresh breads in Venice – which are known also today in the 18th century at Arnstadt.

This is like a musician not only playing music, but is also making own creation as music compositions.

Johann Sebastian Bach is inspired: »I have to create also an own composition like
the creative bakers daughter…«.
During she cooked smiling the coffee and prepared it so nice Bach felt „at home“,
now sitting here. He took a piece of paper and started to write a piece which is known in the future as „Praeludium in C-Major“ of the „Well tempered piano – part I“.
But in its version for lute. (Bach wrote later several versions about this praeludium in the future).
The bakers daughter stopped working as she saw that his handsome man is now writing his first composition in his life. Yes, this moment is the beginning of over thousands of compositions he will write in the future.

246 Praeludium in C BWV 846

picture – manuscript of Bach’s Praeludium in C- Major, BWV 846

The bakers daughter understood and could feel „SHE is the women who made Johann Sebastian a composer“, she is his Saint Cecilia and she is his inspiration.
Now she brought him the fresh coffee in a nice can and smiled as she saw how fast Bach wrote on his music sheet and that he wrote „Praeludium“ and he wrote „Lute“ on it. She got red on her innocent cheeks and she felt now that she is not a little girl any more.
A mystic warm energy came from heart to heart between him and her.

Bach smiled and the bakers daughter smiled.

245. Bach’s first secret love in Arnstadt

245. Bach’s first secret love in Arnstadt

 

And they continued to dream their Peony Gondola dream:

* * *

This year 1581 was a very important year for the life of Palma and Palmina.
It was on the one hand a good year but it was also a year of big decision.

* * *

At the next morning Palma and Palmina read in the newspaper:

»A big burning incident happened in Arnstadt city in Germany. Nearly the whole city was destroyed and burned. Also the Organ was completely destroyed. It will take decades to reconstruct the city and a new organ there…«, Palma said to Palmina.

»Oh, the poor people of Arnstadt…«, Palmina said.
* * *

Suddenly the Peony Gondola showed them a talk between Mozart and his talented piano playing and composing Sister Nannerl:.

»…and this really happpened? Bach was in Venice secretly with his wife and with 2 of his 4 daughters?«

»Yes, Nannerl, I know this from one of his daughters. Our family has a very good friendship to the Bach family. You remember, I learned from a Bach son, they call him the London Bach. And, and,…the daughter of Bach said if we have financial problems we should write them and the Bach daughters will collect money so that they can send money to us to help us…«

»Oh, really,«, Nannerl Mozart said, »they are really good friends, good musician friends…We all love the Bach-family«.

»So a Bach daughter told me this secret story about Bach. – Nannerl, Natschi, Tschini Fibi! – Listen:…«

And Mozart gave Nannerl a tender kiss on her talented hands and on her cheeks and he begun the secret story and it was like that:
* * *

As Bach explained to his daughter Elisabeth that the well-known famous painter Palma il Giovane had his big family flat in the 2nd floor left beside the Astronomic Clock on the San Marco Place, the Bach family all went to have a fine walk along the big promenade along the „Riva degli Schiavoni“ in the south direction.

After a long walk they went in a left street which led them to the »Campo Bandiera e Moro«, a big place.

picture 01 view from the big place at Palmina's bakery shop »Campo Bandiera e Moro« in Venice.png
picture 01 view from the big place at Palmina’s bakery shop »Campo Bandiera e Moro« in Venice

At the »Calle de la pieta« they sat down to a little bakery cafe to have a rest.

Daughter Elisabeth gave the little cage with the yellow canary bird on the table and little ‚Pipsy‘ started suddenly to make: »Peep, peep, peep!«.

»What’s with you, Pipsy, why are you so excited…?«

Bach looked around and looked to the bakery shop, and looked again at the place.

»Anna Magdalena«, which was 15 years younger then his husband Johann Sebastian, felt that something is going on in his heart but she did not ask, maybe he has an inspiration.

„This bakery shop, this big place…this looks also…this remembers me…oh, my old remembering…my first…she was my first….yes, the lute playing bakers daughter…“

Bach seemed to be excited. Never his daughter had seen him so emotionally looking around in his whole live.

picture 02 Venice at Palminas bakery shop.png

picture 02 Venice at Palminas bakery shop

»Daddy, what’s wrong with you…you have been here on that place..? You have remembering…remembering on this bakery shop with a lute playing baker’s daughter…«

Anna Magdalena remembered in this moment that Bach was strongly inspired to compose a lot of Lute music piece and it is e secret why this instrument really inspired him so much.

»Peep, Peep, Peep«, made the little yellow canary bird and Bach understood his beloved yellow canary bird. The bird seems to tell him all his remembering.

»Oh, It is a very emotional remembering.

picture 03 Arnstadt-Schlossmuseum-Baeckerei-mon-plaisir-18-Jhr-1983.jpg

picture 03 Arnstadt-Schlossmuseum-Baeckerei-mon-plaisir-18-Jhr-1983

As I was 18 years old, you know as I was officially playing the first time on the Organ in Arnstadt…hmmmm. I remember very good, this sunny day, it was the…13th of July in the year 1703…what a day…want you really hear this story???

…it was my first love…«

»Oh, Daddy how Romantic, tell us we want to know…Daddy’s first love with 18 years.«

»Peep,peep,peep…«, made Pipsy and jumped excited agreeing in his little wooden cage around.

Anna Magdalena did not know this episode of Bach’s early live. She smiled shy and was interested to hear about that.

picture 04 Bach Praeludium in C-Magior.jpg

picture 04 Bach Praeludium in C-Magior

»Yes, In Arnstadt…yes, she was my first love and she brought me to be a composer. She inspired me to compose the Capriccio, I later dedicated also to to my brother, but it was composed for her and the Preludium in C-major…and piece for Organ ‚Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern‘ – because she was the morning star on my horizon shining for me… and,…ok, I tell you…«

And Bach begun to tell the story, sitting at the Campo Bandiera e Moro in Venice at the baker’s shop at the ‚Calle de la Pieta‘.

For a moment he had tears in his eyes and Anna Magdalena realized it and put his hand on his right arm.

»Yes, but without her I would never decide to be a composer I would never meet your mum later as composer and we would never get married and you, my little daughters would not now be here with us here in Venice…“

* * *

And Bach started to tell the little love-story and it was like that:

picture 05 Arnstadt - Johann Sebastian Bach Church.png

picture 05 Arnstadt – Johann Sebastian Bach Church

On the 13th of July in the year 1703 Bach was invited to test the new Organ in Arnstadt. The Church was full of people and they wanted all to listen how the new organ of Johann Friedrich Wender was sounding.
The people had to wait a long period since the city burned in the year 1581.

The place was full of people. All the people wanted to listen and to see the new organ of the church.

picture 06 left view to the historic bakers shop.png
picture 06 left view to the historic bakers shop

A young bakers daughter from a shop direct on the left side of the entrance came out of her shop as she listened Bach’s organ playing.

She opened her mouth like to hear a miracle.

Yes, she stopped her work in her shop. But she could not see me.

picture 07 Bach-Organ in the Johann Sebastian Bach Church.png
picture 07 Bach-Organ in the Johann Sebastian Bach Church

First she only listened Bach without seeing how he looks like.
A big familiar feeling went through her heart. She was sure she knows him. Yes, he is an old soul and their souls are friends, deep music loving friends.

»Hach, why this talented musician is only testing our new Organ? Why he comes not and played always for us…?«, The mother of the baker’s daughter said.
She heard the organ also playing and stood now beside her daughter.
The baker’s daughter wanted to hide her fascination for Bach’s Organ playing, but mother realized very fast and smiled understanding.

picture 08 Entrance of Bach Church in Arnstadt.png

picture 08 Entrance of Bach Church in Arnstadt

After the concert the people of Arnstadt where fascinated and applaud not only for the quality of the sound of the organ also for the way the compositions Johann Sebastian played.

picture 09 Big place in Arnstadt with Bach Monument.png
picture 09 Big place in Arnstadt with Bach Monument

The people said »We have to ask him to stay in our city to be our Organ playing musician…he is the best musician and best organ expert…«

– »Congratulation, such a good organ and such a good performance…«
»Great, great, we want more concerts from Mr.Bach«

And as Bach left the church he was surrounded by the people of Arnstadt like a shooting star.

picture 10 view on the historic baker's shop in Arnstadt.png

picture 10 view on the historic baker’s shop in Arnstadt

The baker’s daughter wanted to see how Johann Sebastian is looking like, but she could not see him, so much people are outside at the place around the church.

»If he would come in our bakery shop? This amazing Organ playing star?«, the bakers daughter said to her mother and again her mother understood and smiled.

picture 11 young women wearing traditional cloth of the 18th century.jpg

»He played so wonderful the Organ like Apollo. We could even hear his concert outside here on the street.

picture 12 Bäckerei Fischer Arnstadt (as example).jpg

picture 12 Bäckerei Fischer Arnstadt (as example)

Whole Arnstadt is celebrating him, it is a big honour to have a concert by Bach here in our little city. If he will stay here and play the Organ every week?

Let us pray that the heaven decides to lead his way to us, mother…«
And again mother smiled silent and understood.

* * *

After they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina put her head on Palma’s side and they heart suddenly a music like that:

»+++ BREAKING NEWS – BREAKING WORLDPRESS NEWS +++

Palmina went this morning along the San Marco Place and bought this fresh printed ‚Worldpress‘ newspaper.

She started reading and said: »Look Palma, they write about you…and,and, the Cardinale will today come to Venice….read, read, looook,look, Palma…“

Palma took the newspaper and read:

»…the highest court announced today that „…it IS NOT A CRIME to help too much poor and ill persons… “ The orders given by Cardinale Hell from the Vatican State to arrest the innocent Cardinal Borromaeus are not accepted by the highest court in order that Cardinale Hell is now declared as officially as criminal.

A BIG BRIDGE WILL BE BUILD

Along the new feast there will be a new long bridge only for the duration of the days of the „Il Redentore feast“.
The people can go along the big bridge to go over the water to the „Church il Redentore“.

* * *

After they read the newspaper standing on the San Marco Place a lot of pigeon had landed around them and looked up to them as if they did understand the newspaper.
Now the pigeons flew to the Gondola which was waiting for them at the other end of the San Marco Place.

Both went there and Palmina and Palma entered a Gondola .Palma helped her to enter the Gondola and smiled.

Palmina smiled and said: »Palma, I am so proud on you. Cardinale Borromaeus will visit our „Le Zitelle Orchestra“ on Giudecca and the „Cantico delle Creature“ will be performed, and, and your painting will be presented at the Chiesa Il Redentore.
Oh, Palma, oh, Palma, what a big feast today will be. Oh, I love you, my painter, my composer, my love letter writer, my children protector….“

And Palma and Palmina looked sideways to the island Giudecca and smiled.
Soon the big traditional ‚Il Redentore festival‘ will start here in Venice.

Palmina put her hand on Palma’s hand very tender and Palma could feel it.
Now he looked at her beautiful smiling face. He realised how much he loves her and the sun made her hairs beautiful.

Slowly the Gondola moved to the other side in the direction of Giudecca Island.
They will have a few hours of rehearsal for the concert today at evening.
The innocent girls came all with their music instruments and also the girls and children choir was there.
As they saw Palma and Palmina coming to the Le Zitelle they waved all from their windows.

„Look, Palma and Palmina are coming to make a rehearsal with us. Let us take all our music instruments and come at the concert stage in the garden.

And all the girls and children came in the Le Zitelle Garden to sit at their place on the stage to be ready to make a rehearsal of Palma’s Hymnus.

How often Cardinal Hell tried to pay millions to stop this music-social projects for children. How often he gave a lot of money to people to sabotage this social projects. But now Cardinal Borromaeus is their strong hand of the heaven to stopp this intrigues against these poor children.

And now they made the rehearsal like that:

Portrait_of_Caterina_Coronaro_1542_uffizi_florence_Titian (1)

picture – Caterina Cornaro, Queen of Cyprus, Queen of Armenia, Byzantium Princess and „Daughter of Saint Mark“ *) painted by Master Titian

At this eternal Peony Gondola Hour at 23 o’clock Palmina was lucky to hear that music from Palma“s heart.

After this music vision Palmina raised her head, smiled and said now with her soft innocent voice:
„Oh, Palma, my composer! You made me so happy with your 4 Strings variation…“
Palma smiled and answered „Oh, my Pigeon my inspiration, even if we would live on two different places, we would be connected with the help of our Peony Gondola.“
„Yes, Palma, we would think on each other every day, every moment.“, Palmina said with a big smile.

„Can you remember the years between 1578 and 1580 or so…you have been several times in Cyprus Island and wanted to write a letter to me?…“

„Yes, Palma, how could I forget this…“

And now they saw this Peony Gondola Vision:

* * *

Palmina sat on her little table on her little window, her music instruments beside her, and looked out of her little window over her little garden.

She saw a bird flying from tree to tree.
„Oh, I want to write a letter or message to my Jacopo Palma il Giovane, I love him so much…“

And she started to write a nice, beautiful letter to Palma. After she did this she moved her head a little bit left and a little bit right to proof if it is written good and nice.

She wrote:“

Cyprus Island, 15..
Dear beloved Palma!

Today I thought all the day how I can send you a message.
There is no secure way to a message from my island since the island was taken 1572, and the Christian Church had been destroyed from the „holy war worrier“.

Today in the north over 300 citizens had been attaked and killed, over 500 citizens are injured at the north part of the island.
I think the island will be divided in a north and a south part in the future.
I am living in the south-west part and there is no war here and no terror but they are stealing our letters.
Palma, during my concert tour here I suddenly found out that my father, who left mother for an other women, started secret business relations with the enemies of our republic of Venice. Isn’t it terrible?
I am not sure, but I feel that the dark sugar earth social network administrators have secret business relation to the Vatican State. The people here say a mighty cardinale will be arrested soon.
But to write a secure letter it is not possible, also here in the south west part of my island.
We all feel isolated here if we get not soon HELP FROM EUROPE.
Palma, I want to communicate with you.
Why we can not get rid of the letter stealing dark sugar earth organisation?
Communication should be a basic right!
I visited the historic place of my ancient relatives from the 14th century. How beautiful Master Titian painted the relative of my mother…
Here is a copy of the painting and it is also very good.
My beloved Palma, I want to tell you that I am planing to play some compositions from you, especially your „Loredan Mass in G-Major“ for Choir and Orchestra.
I found a nice Choir Master and he wants to perform parts of your composition from you, here on my Island here.
I remember as you composed the first movement on your Mandolin solo, standing under my little window in the „Calle de la Pieta“ in Venice to express your inspiration and love to me.
Oh, Palma, I want to come back to Venice. I think the Vatican-business-friends from the north are reading my letter and controlling my private contacts.
We have to see us today again in our secret Peony Gondola to make music over a big distance, to speak with each other over a big distance and to hug over a big distance.

Hope you will get my message.
Il tell this message as music message to my birds in my garden.
Their communication system is more secure and faster than the human mail system.

With much love
Your you deeply loving
Palmina Albina“

And Palmina took her music instrument and started to play wonderfully.

The little colorful bird landed on her window and wanted to listen to her music message. Palmina transformed her music message into a beautiful melody.
The other birds on the trees looked interested and stopped to sing just to hear Palmina.
After Palmina ended the bird flew lucky away, made a little round in the air and flew to another bird far away.
Then the bird sung Palmina’s melody and the other bird listened.
Later this other bird flew lucky away and flew far, far away to another bird over the sea and landed at another bird and sung the Melody.
Yes, and also this bird brought the secret music message for Palma to another bird, and so on…
After a few days a bird landed at Palma’s window in Venice, the city of love and art, and tweeted friendly and lucky.
Palma stood up from his new drawing he was in that moment creating.
He smiled and understood.
Very heartfelt and exactly he is listening to the sweet music love message from his Pigeon Palmina.
Palma understood every word of her letter and thanked to the little Pigeon, who brought the message from Cyprus Island.

* * *

As they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palma said with a sigh in his voice:

„Yes, this was a miracle, I suddenly understood the bird language, Palmina, I love you…“,

„… the message as secret music from the birds: This was a funny idea, Palma.“

And suddenly they saw a new Peony Gondola Vision in another century:

* * *

„You may not speak with Pamina now…“ a priest voice said.

Suddenly they saw the famous composer Mozart sitting beside his sweet sister Nannerl on their family piano.

Mozart took the beautiful talented hands of Nannerl and kissed them tender and said:
„Natschi, Tschini fibi!
… Nannerl, how do you love my creation „The magic flute“, hmmmmmmmm? “

And he kissed her cheeks fast, hoping she likes it.

Nannerl, was shy and smiled:“ Oh, Amadeus. I love it very much…the music but, why the prince can not speak with his deep tender love Pamina at the beginning?“

„Oh, Yes, my inspiration, my sweet yellow canary bird. The Prince and Pamina are not allowed to speak with each other because they should learn to communicate from heart to heart without words.
But, one thing is allowed for them:
To make music during the time of spiritual growing and spiritual development – the time of silence.“

Nannerl said : “ But, Pamina loves him and she wants to talk with him. The prince can not explain her that this time of silence is only a short time…so he composes for her little music pieces on his instrument…“

Mozart said fast:“ …they are going to be a spiritual pair and they are having a spiritual marriage at the end of my opera!“

„A spiritual marriage? Woooo, like Saint Cecilia made it once? Like the saint of music did it…?“, Nannerl said beeing very lucky and inspired,
„But, they made music for each other during the time of silence, to feel each other inside their hearts, to learn to love each other outside the body., inside their hearts and dreams.“

Palma stood slowly up and opened the cage of his Letter-mail-Pigeon to give her the Mail for Palmina.
He took the snow-white Pigeon in his hands and kissed her tender and he let her flew over the San Marco Place.

After she made a little round she flew directly over the Lagoon water to Palmina’s official music-teaching flat at the »Le Zitelle«.

Palmina is now ready with all her music lessons and the Gondolier will come in a few minutes to pick her up and bring her to Palma’s family flat on San Marco Place.

Suddenly someone knocked on her wooden door of her flat.

picture 04 – View to Palmina’s flat at the »Le Zitelle« in the 3rd floor on the left side (in this picture there is light at two windows)

Palmina asked and heard the voice of the last music student from today coming back very excited.

Palmina opened the door and let her again in her flat back:

Palmina has lit on the candle light because the day is slowly turning to a nice evening – Palma’s birthday…

But the girl was excited and said:
»Dear Signorina Palmina, my music teacher! I have an urgent question to you.
I come here only for the music lesson and I am not yet living here at the Le Zitelle like the other girls here but, but, but…«, The young beautiful but shy and sad girl asked.

»Oh, normally I have to go after I have finished my music lessons on le Zitelle and I will celebrate the birthday of our Jacopo Palma il Giovane…«, Palmina answered.

»…no,no, only short, I have only a short important question. I do not know what I should do now.«,

»So what is your question to me…«

»..yes, the friend of my (father/brother?) is urging to give me liquid sugar in my drink and always saying this is healthy for me…
But, but…after a few hours I am loosing my remembering. So I do not know what happened with me in the last hours… I feel so strange, by body…what happened with me…«

»..you are not remembering…?«

»Yes, It is always after I drink a glass of water with that sugar…It feels so strange«

»Hmm…?«

»..yes it is strange, isn’t it? I can not remember what happened…and the next day a person wearing false priest cloth like it is usual at the Carnevale in Venice, is getting a lot of money from the (friend/brother) of my father…and this happens very often the last years….Palmina, Palmina, who can help me?….«

And the girl felt on the knees, like being in-front of a Saint.

»Oh, come up..sit down here…I can give you a contact here on the Le Zitelle which can give you professional help. You know this foundation, which was founded at 1500 here in Venice from the Mighty Doges Family Loredan and especially this church building was later also founded from a fine family member of the Loredans. They give you professional help in that case – Here you are secure – We have body guards from the Republic of Venice to protect all girls we are helping, some are living here, you know…«

The girl hugged Palmina as if she is her spiritual mother and Palmina closed her eyes and understood the dangerous situation in which the beautiful girl is now living with his family.

»One question? Is this sugar called „dark sugar earth“…«

»Dark sugar earth? Yes, I could listen the words of the false priest, wearing actor priest cloths, speaking of the World Wide expention of the Church of Dark Sugar Earth…
I read in the newspaper that this illegal church is a dangerous social network, with contacts to dangerous administrators… one was arrested, a cardinal or so and all his criminal helpers earning money from child-prostitution…with that money they are expanding their fake-religion. A Mrs. Cambridge founded it in Spain or so, inspired by non-christian radical religions business group from south Spain or so, I am not sure…«, the girl excited said.

»Oh, I see…I know, I read it in the newspaper, they arrested a ‚big fish‘ of the administrators of this social network… The criminal administrators wanted that the good Cardinal, Cardinale Wang, or is his name Cardinale Carolus Borromäus*) should be arrested because he helped to save all these poor girls, girls like you and our Le Zitelle Girls he at »Santa Maria de la Presentatione«, here on Giudecca Island…Here I give you the name and address…Don’t talk to your brother…or was it your father?..your father’s brother?,…or your fathers friend…Talk to nobody …AND DO NOT DRINK WATER with SUGAR!!!«, Palmina said like a sever teacher but very friendly with her soft and beautiful voice

»…But wait, today at Palma’s birthday the Person will be at the special guests concert in Palmina’s family flat where I am living now…You can come with me to the feast and I will arrange the contact…«

________________

*) Carolus Borromaus, was arrested because of helping children against child-prostitution with founding helping institutions within the catholic church
(Official there was told that he helped ill people too much so they made this as ‚reason‘ to arrest him).
He saved the Sacred Music Tradition of Europe within the ‚Council of Trient‘ while the radical groups wanted to shut down any religions music in all churches worldwide.

________________

»Woow, what, I, I…your little poor music student girl..? I can come to the fine V.I.P. concert on Palma’s birthday on San Marco Place!!!«, the beautiful and poor girl said and jumped in the air several times.

»But, I will give you some cloth from me. Over there, you see these fine cloth?… you should wear it this evening. it is a very fine family, you know…
Jacopo Palma il Giovane is a very fine man and has the biggest heart of Venice, especially for the Le Zitelle girls….
I think he will also give you a job as model in the Titian Painting school and he will paint you beautifully as saint or saint virgin and so…«

And the little girl jumped again several times in the air and hugged Palmina smiling and she was so lucky to have Palmina as her music teacher like a music therapist.

In this moment Palma’s fast Letter Pigeon flew on Palmina’s window in the 3rd floor.

picture 05 - view at Palmina's music teaching flat at the »Le Zitelle« on Giudecca Island (A 'Gondola' is arriving to pick Palmina up)

picture 05 – view at Palmina’s music teaching flat at the »Le Zitelle« on Giudecca Island (A ‚Gondola‘ is arriving to pick Palmina up)

»Come! Palma wrote me a letter…
Go and try this beautiful cloth…
hurry up..we are late..
The ‚Gondolieri‘ is coming, I see him from the window…He is coming to pick us up and he will bring us to San Marco Place in a few minutes…
Hurry up…
Yes, take this cloth and I will read fast the Signore Jacopo Palma’s Letter….«, Palmina fast organized.

Yes, Palmina was clever and fast organizing. She could be decent an carefully with her music students like a music therapist. Always she takes care, also not only of the music pedagogic development; also she takes care of the psychic situation of her girl students.

Palmina read the letter slowly and smiled standing on her window and looking to the direction of the San Marco Place.

* * *

Palma stood also at the window and felt that Palmina is reading his letter and it felt so warm in his heart to be connected with her.

* * *

And after they saw this beautiful Peony Gondola Vision, Palmina put her head on Palma’s side and she wanted to hear what Palma’s heart is now composing music for Organ and Violin and they saw a Vision and they saw musicians at an Organ standing in 300 or 400 years in the future.

The music was like this:

225. Happy Birthday, Palma il Giovane!

225. Happy Birthday, Palma il Giovane!

picture 1 -Orazio_Gentileschi_-_Saint_Cecilia_Playing_the_Spinnet.png
picture 1 -Orazio_Gentileschi_-_Saint_Cecilia_Playing_the_Spinnet

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

* * *

The next day Palmina had always to think about Palma’s Piano solo he composed for his beloved Palmina, his inspiration, his Saint Cecilia.

Today she had two talented music students at the Gardens of Giudecca.
The mother of the talented girls is also playing a music instrument and it is very creative to teach them music lessons.

As Palmina went back along the Giudecca island to the »Le Zitelle« she teaches also the girls there in music.

Now she has a little break between her music lessons.
Sitting in her official flat in the 3rd floor of the »Le Zitelle« building she is thinking on her Palma, which has today birthday and she sat down on her little table at the window and started to write a Pigeon-letter mail to her Palma il Giovane who lives on the other side of the Lagoon water on the San Marco Place.
From her window she can see directly to the San Marco Place and she smiled.

She looked to the cage of the Letter-Pigeon and smiled to her.

»After my music lessons here, I will go to Palma and celebrate with him his birthday in our Peony Gondola. But first I will send him a Pigeon-letter mail to wish him happy birthday…«, Palmina thought lucky and smiling.

* * *

Palma felt in this moment that she is writing a letter to her and he stopped for a while his painting work at the famous palazzo in Venice.
In his thoughts he could feel, no he could see her sitting beautifully on her table writing a Pigeon-Letter Mail for him.

In his imagination it looks so beautiful and poetic how his sweet Palmina is thinking and writing for him.
Palma cleaned fast his fingers, full of wet colours and took a sheet of paper and a pencil to draw how he feels and sees Palmina in his deep heart Vision.

Palma made a very fast drawing.

picure 4 - drawing by Palma il Giovane

picture – drawing by Palma il Giovane

Yes, Palma is the INVENTOR OF THE DRAWING AS INDEPENDENT ART DISCIPLINE.
Before Palma there was only the tradition that a pencil drawing is only the draft of an oil painting and the drawing has no meaning for art.
Palma was famous for doing fast and very often own drawings and these drawings had been the first time in the history of art defined as a complete independent art discipline.

Palma send her an imaginary cheek kiss and Palmina smiled in this moment and kissed the letter she wrote:

„Venice, Giudecca-Island 16….

My beloved Palma!

Today on your BIRTHDAY, I write you a little Pigeon-Letter-Mail.
I am so lucky that we can see us now every day and I am now a part of your life.
The Pigeon will fly from here at the »Le Zitelle« over the Lagoon water directly to your window at the 2nd floor at the San Marco Place. And no one will destroy the letter. No one will steal the letter. No one will destroy our deep love and our deep music art friendship.
I know that I am inspiring you and that you are always lucky to be creative in painting, composing and writing in order to these inspirations.
Last time we met in our Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock you composed from your heart a music piece I loved so much – The Piano solo –

Palma, thank you!
My composer, my painter and writer…

I would like to tell you that I am planing to play several compositions from you in my little fine concerts.
Today we can speak about this in our Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock celebrating your birthday.

Dear Palma, I am so looking forward to see you!

Happy birthday, dear Palma!

Your you deeply loving

Palmina, your Pigeon, your Saint Cecilia“

And as they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina took her Lute and played for him being with him in this beautiful Peony Gondola.

And suddenly a text appeared written in an old Chinese language like this on the evening sky.

說萬物者莫說乎澤,*)

„Of all that forces that GIVE JOY things, there is no more gladdening than the LAKE ☱.“

And then Palma took his Viola music instrument and Palmina took her Pipa Lute and they made together music at their Peony Gondola hour at 23 o’clock like this about the image of „LAKE, the joyous“ :

224. Palma tunes his harpsichord after Palmina’s lute

224. Palma tunes his harpsichord after Palmina’s lute

1

And as Palmina heard so directly music from Palma’s heart she realized that she started to dream and Palma put his arm around her during that and she smiled.
Also Palma did. And he could feel her smile at the beginning of this Peony Gondola hour at 23 o’clock. Palmina smiled very strong, Palma could feel it and smiled also, it was not possible not to smile.
Palma dreamed also, the same dream in this moment, in this Peony Gondola hour at 23′ o clock.
And they continued to dream and they saw this:

* * *

Palma was sitting on his harpsichord and realized, as he finished tuning it, that if he tunes his harpsichord after the Lute of Palmina, in well tempered half tones, it was possible to modulate a music through all half-tones in Magior and Minor.
But Palma tried out to play now and it was possible!
Normally here in Venice, in this 16th century, it was not possible to do so on a harpsichord or an organ – the instruments are tuned to play only in a few scale but not in all 12 semitone scale.
Palma will next week ask an organ-tuner to tune a little organ after Palmina’s semitones.
»Do you think, Palmina, he will tune the Organ like my harpsichord in equal like Well-tempered *) 12 semi-tones like your lute and my mandolin are already tuned?«, Palma asked loud, hoping that she is in the room nearby, listening him and that she will come to him in the big representative room of his flat on the San Marco Place in Venice, in the 2nd floor.

picture - Circle of fifths

picture – circle of fiths needs the „well tempered tunning“ –  the „Well temperament“ *)

»Yes, Palma, Yes…I think he will try it after you have shown him how your harpsichord is tuned…wait, I come…«, Palmina answered from the other room.
And now Palmina came with her lute to make music with Palma.
This moments are the most beautiful moments in Palma’s painting and artis’s live.
Palmina is with him and they are now alone, and they only want to do one thing: To make music, to feel the music-harmonic-connection between their hearts.
Palma played a few notes to test his new „lute-tuning“ of this instrument.
And suddenly he felt inspired with thinking on his pure pigeon, his snow-white saint spirit pigeon, bringing him always to new inspiration for his painting music creativity.
And Palma played and played and he tried out this new „Well tempered -12 semi-tons equal-tuning.“

* * *

As they saw this Peony-Gondola vision Palmina was very proud on her Jacopo Palma il Giovane, her painter, her composer, her love-story writer, her deep and only love.

Again she put her head on his side and continued to hear music and it was like that:

*) Well temperament – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Well_temperament

WELL TEMPERAMENT (also good temperament, circular or circulating temperament) is a type of tempered tuning described in 20th-century music theory. The term is modeled on the German word wohltemperiert. This word also appears in the title of

J.S. Bach’s famous composition „Das wohltemperierte Klavier„, The Well-Tempered Clavier.“

„The first circular temperament was described by the organist ARNOLT SCHLICK**) in the early 16th century[citation needed], but „well temperaments“ did not become widely used until the baroque period. They persisted through the classical period, and even survived into the late 19th century in some areas, for example in Italy. [citation needed]
There are many well temperament schemes, some nearer meantone temperament, others nearer equal temperament. Although such tunings have no wolf fifth, keys with many sharps or flats still do not sound very well in tune (due to their thirds). This can contrast chords in which vibrations are concordant with others where the vibrations are not harmonically related. Some theorists [weasel words] have sought to define „well temperament“ more narrowly to exclude fifths wider than pure, which rules out many such schemes.“

**) Arnolt Schlick – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arnolt_Schlick
Arnolt Schlick (July 18?  c. 1455–1460 – after 1521) was a German organist, lutenist and composer of the Renaissance. He is grouped among the composers known as the Colorists. He was most probably born in Heidelberg and by 1482 established himself as court organist for the Electorate of the Palatinate. Highly regarded by his superiors and colleagues alike, Schlick played at important historical events, such as the election of Maximilian I as King of the Romans, and was widely sought after as organ consultant throughout his career. The last known references to him are from 1521

The first circular temperament was described by the organist Arnolt Schlick in the early 16th century, but „well temperaments“ did not become widely used until the baroque period.

This can contrast chords in which vibrations are concordant with others where the vibrations are not harmonically related. Some theorists[weasel words] have sought to define „well temperament“ more narrowly to exclude fifths wider than pure, which rules out many such schemes.
Some well-known well temperaments go by the following names:
Werckmeister temperament (invented by Andreas Werckmeister)
French Temperament Ordinaire
Neidhardt
Kirnberger
Kellner
Vallotti (invented by Francesco Antonio Vallotti)
Young
Some temperament schemes feature numbers of perfect, pure fifths and these give enhanced harmonic resonance to instruments and music on which they are played so that music moves into and out of focus between keys as vibrations lock together or not. Werckmeister features 8 perfect fifths, Kellner 7 and Vallotti 6.
The contemporary composer Douglas Leedy has written several works for harpsichord or organ in which the use of a well temperament is required.[citation needed]

168. Variation of the ‚Thinking on each other Melody‘

 ·168. Variation of the ‚Thinking on each other Melody‘
 

And after they heart Palma’s music answer Palmina smiled.
And how is the music score?
Can I see it?
Yes, Palmina, here it is.
And the Peony Gondola transmitted the music score and it looked like that:

picture - music score of »Variation of the 'Thinking on each other Melody'«

Palmina smiled and looked at the music score.
Then she looked into Palma’s eyes and gave the music sheet a little kiss.

»Thank you my Palma…«

                  (to be composed.....continued....)

167. Palmina’s secret composition for Palma

_ »Venice, 15..
(Love-Letter 167)

   Dear Palmina!

My heart feels lucky to think on you.
Especially now, my heart could feel and hear a little melody you composed for me.
I could feel that you send a beautiful music-message to my heart.
You are so touching deeply my heart if you play something for me. Especially your fine compositions.
I love you. I feel it, you are coming from a higher dimension to take care for my music development in my heart.
I thank you so much, my dear Pigeon,
my Saint Cecilia, my little inspiring yellow canary bird.

This inspires me to compose as little music answer to your composition –
a little variation of our »Thinking on each other – Melody«.

Our love is strong and it goes beyond all borders and problems! 🙂
There are enemies against our relation and love but love is always stronger.
Yes, we can exchange our love and music ideas here in our Peony Gondola at 11 p.m.

I am so looking forward to see you there.

I send you from my heart this music-Variation directly to your heart.
But listen good and find the melody. It is a little bit hidden. Tell me if you could find the hidden melody.

With much love

Your you loving
your deep love, your painter,
your composer

      Your Palma il Giovane,«

             * * * 

And Palmina and Palma continued to see this Peony-vision and both smiled.

Palmina hold his right hand. Yes, this could Palma feel and he smiled and was very thankful about her heartfelt thoughts.

»Palma?«

»Hm?«

»Yes, today I played an own composition for you from heart-to-heart.
Later I send you also a short message but I saw that the brother of a music colleague of our little orchestra, which father is member of the dark sugar network, did steal her letter and showed it to her father. Her father observed this poor innocent daughter through his false brother since about two years. And…he also opened YOUR LETTER box and he steal also MY letter to you, I mean your letter…he did steal YOUR letter, because you are the normal owner of my letter if it is in YOUR letter box…so this guy has stolen our letter from YOU AND ME.«

Palmina kissed Palma on his right cheek soft and tender, Palma smiled.

»Yes, Palmina! Today I could feel your positive thoughts in my heart and suddenly I composed a variation about the »Thinking on each other melody«, Palma whispered to her in her ear.

»Oh fine! Can I listen to it?…But first I play my composition for you!!!

picture – manuscript

And Palmina started to play her beautiful composition.
Palma looked at her face and he felt all her love energy.
She played although her right middle finger painted a little bit.
But her love for Palma was stronger than her pain, she really cares for him, she really loves him.

Again she looked so beautiful playing her composition for him.

Palma smiled and such moments were Palma’s most beautifull moments in his live:
That Saint Cecilia is playing for him and to hear her playing only for him.

»Thank you my angel,
thank you my pigeon,
my little yellow canary bird,
Thank you my Pipa-Princess Wang Chun Chao
Thank you my Saint Cecilia.«,
Palma said and hugged her with his heart long and deeply.

Now I show you the copy of my letter which had been stolen and erased by the brother of my music colleague from my little orchestra«.

Palma hugged her and gave her a tender cheek kiss – a tender kiss to his white Pigeon.

And Palmina read her love letter to Palma:

»Venice, 15..

Dear Palma!

My deep and only love. Today I write you a short message. I hope that this letter will not be again stolen by the members of the dark sugar earth social network.
I decided to protect your creativity with my loving heart.

Today I played my composition as music answer for you.

I am so proud that you are composing the Cantico delle Creature.
It will be a big manifest for the divine light and against the darkness of the evil child-prostitution-networks worldwide.
Everywhere were evil people try to pay a lot of money to avoid a music performance of your Cantico delle Creature there are maybe criminal persons who are in connection with the children-sellers network like the Church of Security and its dark sugar earth connections.

I love your Cantico delle Creature and thank you that you dedicated so much Lute soli for my instrument to play in this artwork and I am really proud of you.
I came into your life as I was send to help you in your difficult life – in good times and in evil times.
Day by day I feel the music-mission together with you.
Even we can not often see us, speak us, write us and be together in the Gondola in Venice we have our Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock, a present of the heaven, to stay in deep contact over big physical distances and big cultural distances – But are they big?
Yesterday I thought on you at 11 p.m. Did you feel it also?
Let’s talk about our music-ideas in the next meeting in our Peony-Gondola.

With much love

your Pigeon,
your yellow canary bird,
your Inspiration,
your personal Saint Cecilia,
Your Y…
       …ou loving Palmina«

            * * *

And Palma’s heart was so warm surrounded by her tender words.
Palma could not say any word but Palmina felt how he reacted in his heart.

And the Peony Gondola transmitted the music Palma composed about the »Thinking on each other Melody« and it was like that:

    VIDEO: [2018-11-26 Violin+Viola »Variation about the 'Thinking on each other' Melody« ] https://youtu.be/MMUqE1UclDQ

165. Palmina as Saint Cecilia

___ 165. Palmina as Saint Cecilia ___

picture 1a – Saint Cecilia with Angel

And this eternal tender soft kiss made Palma very lucky.

Suddenly the weak lantern light radiated more light then in the last hours and was very strong and shined on Palmina’s beautiful face.

Palma saw now how beautiful Palmina looked and was deeply touched and inspired.

»Palmina?…« he whispered fast.

 »Hm?«

»Can you sit down at your music table where the little table organ is?«

Palmina smiled and could feel how inspired Palma was in these minutes and sat down at her music table.

Palma put the strong shining lantern on the window to shine on the place at the music table. He could see that Palmina looked so good sitting at her little table organ and smiled looking into Palmina’s innocent eyes.

Palmina understood: Palma wants to paint her as »Saint Cecilia«.

For a moment he felt on his knees and looked up to her. He folded his hands and said silent a short prayer.
Then he kissed her talented hands.
Palmina understood wordless and smiled and she put her beautiful and talented hands carefully on the little organ and started to play a Saint Hymn of the Saint Cecilia.

Palma smiled and in his heart the sun was rising like in the morning.
He took his painting easel and painting brush, mixed fast a few colours – Palma has always some paintings utensils with him, because it could happen, suddenly, that Palmina inspires him only with her smile.
So he started to paint a new painting.

        picture 1b - detail Saint Cecilia

He painted her golden hairs.
He painted her beautiful Eurasian eyes looking as if she has it opened a little bit and closed a little bit.

    picture 2 - detail of Palmina

(This Palma knows from some Buddhist paintings of the female Guan Yin – This he learned at the Buddhist nun on Giudecca Island)
He painted her with white-orange cloth.

        picture 3 - detail organ

Palmina played wonderfully on her little organ which she normally used only for her music-lessons for the talented la Zitelle girls, here at the Jesuits.

And suddenly, as his love to Palmina was pure and innocent he was allowed to see the Angel from St. Cecilia¹ which is protecting her virginity.

picture 4 - detail Palmina and the Angel 
holding a music score of Palma il Giovane 

Beside her, right, he painted a little beautiful angel.
The angel is holding a little music score, a little Melody by Palma il Giovane. (Angels can transport music messages and are Messengers of the highest)

Palmina has now the composition by Palma learned in her heart and she could play the inspiration directly from her heart, completely by-heart.
And she played an own variation and a music ANSWER as notes for her Palma.
During Palma painted he listened to her music very interested. And he felt lucky that she is composing a beautiful music answer only for him. A secret music answer from St. Cecilia to Jacopo Palma il Giovane.

»Palmina, I did not know that you are composing also for Organ…«

And as he said that he realized that a golden light was shining around her head – The Symbol of saints – he realized that the Saint Spirit of the Saint Cecilia was moving her fingers and she seemed to play with closed eyes.
Palma felt again on his knees and prayed with tears of joy. He the famous painter and unknown composer in Venice of the 16th century, he, he has the big honour to hear the miracle music of this Western Guan Yin, the borderless compassion, the Saint Virgin, one of the mystic 8 Saint Virgins together with the Saint Virgin.
He felt blessed, if his live was only for this night with her, if his live was only to paint only this miracle painting of his Saint Cecilia, he knows now why he was born.

Dear Palmina, dear Saint Pigeon Inspiration, Dear Saint Cecilia!

I am so Thankful to know you.
I am so Thankful to have you in my heart.
I am so Thankful for the inspiring encounters with you in the present,
It opens a whole life in our hearts:

The life in the past and future.

In the Past – 400 years ago and century ago –
In the future – in 300 or 400 years and in centuries«

Palmina played like in trance.

»The Saint Spirit is leading her…the Saint Light is around her head and the angel is protecting her virginity«, Palma il Giovane thought.

Over her head he painted very secretly a golden light.

Palma also painted the Organ Pipes and the wings of the little angel.

The first time Palma painted so fast; normally this is impossible to paint such a painting in one night.

The colours are drying normally within days or weeks and you cannot paint in one night. But this night there happened a miracle and Palma felt this and Palmina felt this.«

Outside an old monk, who often has visions, heart the little organ music from Palmina’s flat and wanted to look after Palmina.
But as he stood at Palmina’s closed door he felt the warm golden light energy radiation from Palmina’s room and music. He folded his hands and made some silent prayers. Now he felt on his knees and understood that there is inside a miracle happening and the monk is not allowed to disturb the miracle.
»This is the Spirit of Saint Cecilia. I have to pray that this miracle is protected by the angels«, he whispered.

And the monk prayed on his knees the whole night without being weak or tired for a moment.

During this night Palma painted and painted and Palmina played and played. They felt that their hearts united stronger than ever, It was like a spiritual marriage, blessed by the heaven and all Saints.
Inside his heart Palmina hugged Palma with her music and Palma hugged her with his painting creativity.

Palma and Palmina had such a warm light around and in the hearts that even the night air would be cold from outside they would only feel warm radiation from their hearts.

This painting is a miracle and an image of their spiritual love.

Never Palma painted Palmina so directly and realistic – normally he always painted her in several variations as a fantasy creation – but this time it was a real image of Palmina Albina.

If you look longer at it Palmina seemed to move her thin eyes: a little bit closed – a little bit opened looking down to the keys of the little organ.

They both breathed like one soul and they loved each other spiritually leaving their bodies and uniting in an eternal dimension.

As Palma finished his painting – and outside at the window on the right side there was the heaven a little bit brighter, because in the east the sun will soon rise – Palma felt again on his knees in front of Palmina Albina.

Now the monk outside felt soft sideways on the floor and slept in peace.

Palma said: »You are my Saint Spirit Inspiration – You are the Inspiration of music, the inspiration of St. Cecilia. You ARE…«

»Pssst… Don’t say it so loud…. We both know now the secret. Master Lao and his monks and also a Jesuit Monk, which has Visions, said the same to me a few days ago…It is our deep love secret… Palma we have to be silent about this secret…«

Palma kissed again her talented hands and stood slowly up.

Then he sat on her bed, very, very tired.

Suddenly Palma felt tired sideways and soft on her bed and felt asleep in peace like the monk outside.

»Poor Palma…«, Palmina said, »He painted yesterday from the early morning till the evening in the Chiesa San Antonin and then this painting miracle during the whole night…He needs a rest.«

Palmina smiled and came and caressed his head.

Two Byzantine Pigeons came at the window and made their soft pigeon music sounds and loved each other spiritually from heart-to-heart.

Palmina looked to the two loving Pigeons at the morning window and smiled. Then she looked back to her Palma and smiled also.

Yes, Palma has fallen in love to Saint Cecilia¹, who was sent by the Saint Lucy² (they are 2 of the 8 mystic Saint Virgins) and who really loves Palma il Giovane. She cares for Palma’s spiritual development as painter and composer.
Her smile leads him step by step into the dimension of the heaven of light and love.

But both tried to keep their common secret as long as possible.

Palmina let Palma sleep in her fine little bed, the bed of a Saint. Palma smiled like being in the highest heaven.

At this slowly coming early morning Palmina started to play on her Pipa-Lute very soft and Palma could hear in his dreams all music ANSWERS Palmina was sending from her saint pure female heart to his pure male heart.

Palmina looked long at this mew fresh painted artwork.

»Hm…This is really me… The first time he painted me exactly like I am looking. It was necessary to have one or two pictures so that the world in 300 or 400 years can figure out that I really exist in Venice and how I was looking like….«, Palmina thought and played on her Lute.

»…but we have to be careful. My father has now a lot of money since the fake-priest gave him so much money to destroy the relation between me and Palma sending me always on concert tours outside of Venice…He will maybe again buy all paintings, as he did in the past, where I am painted on… He gives so much money and then he owns Palma’s painting so that no one can see the painting³…who knows? This should not happen to this miracle painting…Hm?…«


³ there is a historic report that a big beautiful painting where Palma painted Palmina was found hidden in a dark room at the backers shop.


Palmina played and thought long about their secret future in Venice.

»…Palma should ask his friend Orazio¹ to make a copy of this painting…I think he is also his scholar and student… He makes excellence copies, which looks like a real duplicate.

        picture 6 - detail original and copy 

Sure Orazio will make this copy…It is our only one chance to keep an authentic painting of me in the memory of the music history…my father tries to destroy all about me…He wants to erase me in the memory of music history… I don’t know why… But he is hardly influenced by the church of …. I mean the members of the international dark sugar earth network…
So there is hope we can keep this image for the world…«, Palmina silently thought and smiled about this solution.

She looked to Palma who seemed slowly to wake up, now the 2nd time, not in his Atelier, but in her clean and pure and fine little bed.

»My Palma….«, her heart softly said.

»…My Palmina….«, Palma’s heart answered her and she could hear it.

»…This is a very good Idea to ask Signore Orazio to paint a copy of this. He is a good friend and scholar of mine. He will take care of this painting-copy if it is necessary. Tomorrow I will ask him…

and I will ask him also a copy the other image with you…
A real painting of the real Saint Cecilia…«, Palma said to Palmina communicating with her heart.

Today at night as Palma painted Saint Cecilia both felt that their hearts united eternal.

    * * *

And as they saw this Peony Vision at 23 o’clock, 11 p.m. Palma’s and Palmina’s hearts where so strong connected that they felt also the same warm feelings like once at Giudecca-Island in Venice at this special evening and during this special creative and inspiring night.

»According to the story, despite her vow of virginity, she was forced by her parents to marry a pagan nobleman named Valerian. During the wedding, Cecilia sat apart singing to God in her heart, and for that she was later declared the saint of musicians. When the time came for her marriage to be consummated, Cecilia told Valerian that watching over her was an angel of the Lord, who would punish him if he sexually violated her but would love him if he respected her virginity. When Valerian asked to see the angel, Cecilia replied that he could if he would go to the third milestone on the Via Appia and be baptized by Pope Urban I. After following Cecilia’s advice, he saw the angel standing beside her, crowning her with a chaplet of roses and lilies.«
