And they continued to see their Peony Gondola Visions:

»Vienna, 15…

Dear Palma!
We arrived now Vienna, the world city of music and culture!
How beautiful it is there!
It is a complete other world than on my island.
On Giudecca-Island in Venice there I love to live there and in Venice, but Vienna is also beautiful!
The travel from Venice to Vienna was hard.
I am not used to travel with a coach, I prefer to move with Gondolas.
(It is more soft and harmonic to move with a Gondola)

And I miss you sitting together with you in our Gondola.
But today at 23 o’clock we will meet each other and I give you this letter because it is faster to send a letter via the Peony Gondola.

And something special happened today, listen Palma:

There was a false Body-guard ho tried to pay 2000 Swiss Franken to the president of the society which is organising our concert in Vienna against international-child-prostitution.
But the President, he is not from Austria, is strong and made a criminal report to the local authorities.
The secret service of our Republic of Venice found out that this false body guard tried to steal the identity of a real body guard and he wanted to sell dark sugar to the girls of our little fine Le Zitelle Chamber Orchestra.
The police came an arrested him and all girls were happy because this body guard started to touch the girl in an un-fine and respect-less way and the girls were afraid from him because his father is a rich man, a big member of the dark sugar network administrators who steals the letters of girls and also from us.

As protest against the sabotage of our little concert in Vienna the president announced to organize a BIG CONCERT with philharmonic musicians with your »Cantico delle Creature« in a Franciscan church in Venice. It could happen that in Venice in the church chiesa dei »Frari« where the big painting of Master Titian »Assunta Maria« is and where your famous and large painting of the Saint Catarina is.
Wooo, I am so looking forward to this concert in Venice, I hope I can play your 8 Lute Soli which you dedicated to me in your »Cantico delle Creature«.

It will be a big manifest against international child prostitution! The European and Asian musicians of our Island are standing behind you, Palma!

Today we will have our first concert here in Vienna,

Looking forward to see you again on our Peony-Gondola at 23 o’clock…

with much love

your Pigeon, your inspiration,
your little canary bird,
your angel
your Saint Cecilia,
your little Pipa Princess Wang Chun Chao
your Y…ou loving Palmina«

                    * * *

Palma smiled as Palmina finished reading her short letter to Palma from Vienna.

He put his strong arm around Palmina and she gave her head on his side.

»Thank you, Palmina. Such a nice letter.
And such nice news. The false body guard is arrested…«

»…How was my day today:
Here is my letter to you, today I wrote for you:
Venice, 15…

Dear Palmina!

Today I had my teaching lessons in the gardens of the Chinese Ming-Dinasty family on Giudecca-Island.
They learn to draw and paint in European tradition. Also they are learning European music instruments, and they are very talented. Two Asian women I started to paint as Saint Women. Later I will show you the paintings. They explain me the Asian music instruments and I like the Asian music also. My painting students came also to the lesson there in the gardens.
The Asian musicians want to found a Dao-Ying-Yang-Chinese-Garden-Orchestra combined with European musicians and they are asking me to compose an Eurasian-Artwork in music like I painted the Asian women a little bit Eurasian in my paintings. You remember my painting of princess Lin…?

Today we see us in the Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock.

Your, You deeply loving
Jacopo Palma il Giovane«

»Oh, great Palma!
I have so much remembering on the »Creative Music Afternoons« at Giudecca-Island with you and your mother teaching the poor little children without parents music and the »Cantico delle Creature«.
I am so proud of you, Palma!«, Palmina said and gave Palma a tender cheek kiss on his right cheek and smiled very friendly.

»Yes, I remember the concert in late spring of the year 1594 at the Le Zitelle.
The Le Zitelle Institution at the Jesuits on Guidecca was sponsored by the famous family Loredan ¹«

»Chiesa collegata al pio luogo delle Zitelle, fondato a metà del 1500, destinato all’educazione di giovani donne povere ma molto belle per le quali la propria avvenenza poteva essere motivo di perdizione e di avvio prostituzione.«

»Le Zitelle (officially Santa Maria della Presentazione) is a church in Venice, Italy. It is part of a former complex which gave shelter to young maidens („zitelle“ in Italian) who had no dowry, and is located in the easternmost part of the Giudecca island. « – wilipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le_Zitelle


»I remember all the girls and musicians….

There was little Irena – she learned to play the Viola by me like little Petra – and it was Irena’s inspiration to play the A-Sting and the D-String on the Viola during the »sora aqua« part of my Cantico delle Creature.
We had then the idea to let all little children play on their children-Violins (my mother organized the little-children violins for the children) only on the A-String and the D-String.

»Yes, it was a very creative afternoon at this year. We played also the beginning of the Cantico with the »ad te solo-Melody«. Yes and the very little children clapped with their hands around going in the circle and Mrs. Petja from Bulgaria helped them. She was a painting student of mine in the Titian-Art-School and painted Jesus very well. I asked her to support the La-Zitelle music-social projects because the children are poor and needy.

»Yes, she did her job very well.«, Palmina said

»And I remember Mrs. Elisabetha, also a Le Zitelle Girl….«, Palmina exited said.

Yes, she was forced by her sever father to sing in restaurants and to stay with old man in a room alone. The man wear false priest cloths to hide his identity. As Elizabetha run away, and as she escaped from her sever father, who always beat her with violence and tried to give her dark sugar, she took a Gondola to Giudecca Island at the Jesuits and asked if she can stay at the Le Zitelle for the next years not to be a child-prostitute.
Therefore she got a singer and music education and was soon a member of the Venice-Titian-Art-Gallery and could also support music-projects with her voice.

»Yes, she sung with the little girls at this Creative Music afternoon your Cantico and the »Kyrie« of your »Prager Messe«. Cardinale Carolus Boromaeo liked this music so much as he visited Venice once and held his sever speech against international child-prostitution.«

»…and I remember the girls, Manuela, who learn so good to play the Lute – my best lute – student!«, Palmina said proud.

»…Yes she is a good musician, but she also learned very good to play the Violin, and the harpsichord. I think she liked you Palma. Women can feel this…«, Palma added

»…also little Sonja, she sung very good in our children-choir and little Petra, but she was tall grown…She learned Viola da braccio from me…and little Nino – he learned Violin…So much children grew up there and also the children without parents – the Le Zitelle institution sponsored also creative music-social projects for children without parents²…«


² an institution like a modern children-village


And the Peony Gondola showed them the remembering-visions of the year 1594 at Venice.

»The children look all so happy to do this CREATIVE MUSIC AFTERNOON…«, Palmina said and hugged Palma with her left hand and Palma could feel her and was happy.

»…no wonder that the criminal organisation of the »Church of Secure Crime – CSC« or and its children-prostitution networks form the dark sugar network administrators wanted to pay over 25.000 International Dollars to destroy this Institutions with lies and intrigues and tried to sabotage of their concerts in Vienna. «, Palma said.

»I am so proud of you Palma for composing this Cantico delle Creature for children.«

And Palmina put her soft hand tender on Palma’s left hand, smiled and looked Palma into his eyes.
Palmina said »Pi-«
Palma answered »-Pa«
Now both said »Liu – to – kiss!« and kissed soft and tender on their lips and closed their eyes.
And as they did so they saw a Peony-Vision of a CREATIVE-MUSIC-AFTERNOON with children at the children Village at Vienna in exactly 400 years in the future and they say this little Peony-Vision of the »Cantico delle Creature« for Children and they saw this:

The Creative-Music-Afternoons had been organized since the 12.April of 1980 by Prof. Renate and Gerald Spitzner


Fondamenta Zitelle, Giudecca

Chiesa di Santa Maria della Presentazione “Le Zitelle”

 

»Realizzata su progetto di Andrea Palladio, gode di una delle più belle e privilegiate viste su Piazza San Marco.

Chiesa collegata al pio luogo delle Zitelle, fondato a metà del 1500, destinato all’educazione di giovani donne povere ma molto belle per le quali la propria avvenenza poteva essere motivo di perdizione e di avvio prostituzione.

Le prime quaranta “zitelle” si stabilirono nell’isola della Giudecca (nel palazzo appartenuto alla famiglia Loredan) nel 1561, riunite in comunità da alcune nobildonne veneziane su ispirazione dei padri Gesuiti. Nel 1574 fu presentato un primo progetto di costruzione del nuovo ‘collegio laico’ dove le giovani avrebbero trovato vitto, alloggio e istruzione fino al raggiungimento della maggiore età.
Il progetto palladiano

La chiesa venne edificata dopo gli anni della peste, dal 1581 al 1585, con l’assistenza dei proti Bartolomeo Manopola e Simon Sorella, per poi essere consacrata nel 1588. Nonostante la mancanza di documenti si può attribuite il progetto ad Andrea Palladio, anche se la prima pietra fu collocata in loco un anno dopo la morte del noto architetto.«

»L’interno, a pianta poligonale, è arricchito da dipinti di Jacopo Palma il Giovane (Orazione nell’orto con, ai piedi, i committenti Pasquale ed Elisabetta Foppa), di Antonio Vassillachi (San Francesco inginocchiato al cospetto della Vergine con il Bambino e il procuratore Federico Contarini) e di Francesco Bassano (Presentazione della Vergine al tempio).«

L’architettura

L’architettura si rifà alla forma del tempio votivo a pianta centrale, trasformato in fase di costruzione per rispondere all’esigenza di inglobare la chiesa entro le ali dell’ospizio. Ciò che possiamo vedere oggi è una facciata a tempio sormontata da una grande cupola affiancata da due campaniletti: la parte inferiore della facciata si apre su due piccole, mentre in quello superiore è movimentata dall’apertura dell’ampia finestra termale a semicerchio.

Uncle Villy – Back to Earth  Blog (chapter 3)

 

Posted on December 4, 2018 

[3.] Orange Light, blue flames and Organ Music

I remember at one evening as we came back from our little walk at the near wood.
We had to cross the high-way bridge to come back to the streets where all the villas are, the diplomatic district of the city.
After a while, it was going to be evening, uncle Villy, uncle Pepi, Aunt Bea, Aunt Zdenka, uncle Pavel (her husband), mum suddenly stopped, Our little dog Mischa looked up to the sky.
We all looked now up to the sky. There was a little red point.

We all knew it, this is Planet Mars.

Uncle Villy made a big and long sigh. All knew it, but nobody wanted to talk about in the public, on the streets.
Although nearly nobody was on the street…but the Mars-Story of our family is not for all to know…

Only special readers are allowed in a few decades to listen to my little remembering.

Uncle Pepi took his hand and laid his hand on his shoulder and smiled to him.

His eyes said to him wordless: »You did your best…Now they are all heroes…It is a miracle that you are today with us…we are all very thankful for that…«

Uncle Villy looked back up to Mars and made again a long sigh.

As I saw them standing there I asked suddenly in this silence:
»Ludevit will come today and show us his new paintings from Planet Mars…«

And I jumped in the air very happy trying to reach Planet Mars with my little hands as little children sometimes do.

* * *

As we came back on that evening, going down the silent, peacefull diplomat-district to our family villa, I went a little round in our garden and played cosmonaut with my children toys.

I sniffed again on our garden roses from aunt Fanny and aunt Sophie – they were botanic specialists – then I went into our house to be with our family at the dining salon.

They spoke about literature and music till Ludevit came.

* * *

Later as Ludevit was also ready with evening dinner he went up with Uncle Villy to show him his new paintings from planet Mars.

»This I like very much…«, Uncle Villy said.

picture - painting of planet Mars landscape

picture – Planet Mars painting

And they talked and talked about their new book about the Mars Mission.

I did not understand them, it was to complicate for me as a little child.
But as they spoke about three orange suns and blue flames and Organ Music on Mars I was very interested.

»And there are really 3 Orange Suns and blue flames on Mars, and, and organ music…?«

»Oh, Gerald, we are now discussing if we should write it in the book or not because some could say this is not scientific enough…«, Uncle Villy said.

»But Villy, you wrote, that as you saw the 3 suns on Mars it was like a WELCOME on MARS…«, Ludevit said as positive argument.

»Yes, we write it because we think that the reader can interprete the feelings of the astronauts by themself…It reflects also the feeling they had as they saw this miracle…«, Ludevit answered.

Villy said: »To say that the astronauts saw these 3 orange suns is for them like to be welcome on Planet Mars…«

»Ludevit, you are a space-artist and I am a space-astronomer, a scientist. We are working together to write down this story of the first men on Mars in modern history. I understand that we can not write only the scientific facts that I wrote down in these hundreds of papers I had to write down and to calculate.
There must be something which is MORE then only a daily logbook of a space astronomer, (in our story a log book of a space-doctor). Only an artist can describe how astronauts had seen the surface of our brother planet Mars…Your painting is great…
Gerald…, Ludevit paintings are amazing, Isn’t it Gerald?«

»Yes, they are looking like real photos…«

And they continued to dream their Peony-Gondola-Dream and they saw this at 11 p.m.:

* * *

And the Choir and the Musicians continued to make music during the feast mass in the San Marco Cathedral in Venice.
Palmina smiled from the music-gallery on the left upper side down to Palma who is very lucky to see her and to hear her performing his artwork.

The famous Cardinale Borromeo listened to Palma’s music compositions very interested.

»He is not only painting very good, he is also composing sacred music…Why a so famous painter of Venice, like Jacopo Palma il Giovane is composing this music…?
Hm, maybe he is in love and he is composing for a women to express his love for her… Composing for love…So beautiful…
Maybe a music dedication to a musician like the Lute Playing Girl? Or it is a dedication to Emperor Rudolf II or also a dedication to me? Hm, interesting, interesting… Yes, yes, I learned now something from him: Music will save the world once… I am sure! Palma is right – Palestrina, the famous composer in Rome; I have to order that he has to compose a Holy Mass for Rome! – That’s a good idea, Palma…«, Cardinale Borromeo was inspired to hear that music and was silently thinking.
And they heard also the »Benedictus« which was sung by Mihaela, Palma’s talented cousin, and she was very lucky and she smiled and smiled as she wants to jump of luckiness in the air because she is the first Mezzo-Soprano to perform this music in music history. Palmina played the Lute-part (it can be played also by a Pipa lute).

* * *

* * *

And as they listened this music in their Peony Vision Palmina smiled and looked into Palma’s eyes.

And they saw now this in their Peony Vision:

* * *

Palmina had a big success in the San Marco Cathedral and in order to that she got an official Invitation to play with the »La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra«, the LZCO to have a concert in Vienna, Austria, the city of music.

But that means again an new sponsored concert tour.
But sponsored by whom? Who gives so much money to lead again Palmina out of the Republic of Venice? And again Palma can not see Palmina for a long time. What a pity!

Palma was lucky that his »Benedictus« was a big success in Venice, also for Palmina, but it means also that Palmina is on concert-tour for long.

She will not be in the morning at the little fine bakery store to sell mothers fine fresh little Venetian breads and to meet Palma there in the morning to smile for him.

And for her: It means not to see Palma painting in the San Antonin Church and not to play for him at the scaffolding.

It means also not to see her in the little atelier at the »Fondamenta dei Furlani« House Nr. 3291« where Palma paints during Palmina is playing for hours for him to inspire him.
It means also for them: Not to see each other at the beautiful Garden of »Giardino«. Not to speak to each other. Not to write to each other (As long the criminals of the dark sugar earth Administrators are not arrested by the Republic no letter will be un-stolen by them).

But they have the Peony Gondola !!!

* * *

Today Palma will finish his famous painting »La Pieta« and Palmina will play the last day before she is invited to travel to Vienna, to give a concert for mighty Emperor Rudolf II, the emperor of Austria.

picture - La Pieta by Palma il Giovane (See also »Lacrimosa« by Gerald Spitzner
picture 2 – »La Pieta by Palma in Giovane«

»Palmina, you played so beautiful here in my little atelier… Your little sweet compositions for me are so amazing. I love you Palmina!
He laid his paint brush to the side and looked a last time on his finished painting.
Palmina said: »Well done, Jacopo Palma il Giovane. You painted me also wonderfully with my red concert cloth and with golden hairs like on Master Titians »Pieta«.
And Palma took Palmina’s talented hands and kissed her carefully several times.
»And I have to thank this talented hands that they played over 40 minutes music for me now. Thank you my Pigeon.«

»Oh Palma, its ok. I like you Palma, you know, it makes me lucky to inspire you and to help you to go your way here in Venice.«.

»Yes, my pigeon, my inspiration, my deep love.«
Palma kissed her arms several times.
Now they are the last time alone and they hugged deeply and tender and long.
Yes, after today’s invitation at the Giudecca Island, and they will go there, there where the gardens of the Chinese friends are, there where the members Family of the Ming Dynasty are living, after that concert they will not be alone. Tomorrow Palmina will leave Venice for a long time to travel to Vienna with the »La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra« to make it famous in Europe.

Today they will meet at afternoon tea time at the Chinese Ming Family, with princess Lin and all the famous artists of the Ming Dynasty who survived the military attack against the Ming in the year 1583.
Maybe in later years, at peaceful times, they can go to China an live there as artists with big honours.
Today there will be a friendship concert – for a friendship between the mighty Republic of Venice and family members of the Ming-Dynasty.
The Chinese musician will play traditional Asian Music and the La Zitelle Chamber orchestra will play European and traditional Venice music pieces.
Today they can speak with Master Lao, who is a wise old man who can tell them some of his Visions he had last night.

mnigPalma and Palmina, after they hugged and kissed full of sympathy and love, they went both along the »Fondamenta del Furlani« along the San Antonin Church, along the big place »Campo Bandiera e Moro« to visit mum in the bakers shop, to get some fine fresh breads, to go along the »Calle de la Pieta« in the direction to the long Promenade »Riva degli Schiavoni«.
They went slowly along the clear sea water in the south direction to the famous »Giardino« garden.
There was also the bank to sit in front of the statue and they sat down again like on other important days in their life.
Palma hugged her. He kissed her on her cheek. She smiled but both were silent and they know, these are their last hours to be alone together.
How often they sat here on this bank and looked to the stars. How often they drove with the Peony Gondola to the Moon-palace to visit the Moon Princess Chang’e and how often they visited planet Mars to great the Mars princess there in their common Peony-Dreams.
Yes, their dreams are sometimes more real then some real days which seems to be sometimes unreal and hard.
How much people died in the last century in Venice on the pest… 30 precent of the people died in Venice. Therefore the Venetian Republic build the »Chiesa Il Redentore« Church on Giudecca Island as »thank you« for surviving that hard time and the Republic ordered also paintings by Palma il Giovane for that beautiful Church.

¹ »Chiesa Il Redentore« – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Il_Redentore

»Il Redentore was built as a votive church in thanksgiving for deliverance from a major outbreak of the plague that decimated Venice between 1575 and 1576, in which some 46,000 people (25–30% of the population) died.«
»Il Redentore contains paintings by Francesco Bassano, Lazzaro Bastiani, Carlo Saraceni, Leandro Bassano, PALMA IL GIOVANE, Jacopo Bassano, Francesco Bissolo, Rocco Marconi, Paolo Veronese, Alvise Vivarini and the workshop of Tintoretto. «

* * *

Exactly this thoughts were also spoken at the friendship concert at the Gardens on Giudecca Island where the Chinese People are living under the protection of the Republic of Venice.

»…and we also are thankful for surviving the pest and also the attacks by the dark sugar earth network here in Venice like you, my Chinese friends, you also survived the war attacks of the Qing Dynasty, who will now own whole China for a long time. So we are thankful for your invitation and your beautiful friendship concert…«, Cardinale Carolus Borromeo continued to speak:
»…and we can announce that there will be a charity concert in Vienna against child-prostitution by our La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra and if some of you will come with them to Vienna to see this beautiful old city and to listen our concerts there the Republic of Venice will send a lot of Bodyguards to protect you during your travel. Palmina Albina, our best Lute player will have 6000 Varanguards to protect her during her concert travel to Vienna…«.

And all spectators applauded here in the big wild gardens of Giudecca-Island.
The buildings and gardens are surrounded by walls and a lot of Soldiers are protecting all entrances: Chinese Soldiers in traditional Ming-Dynasty-Uniforms and Venetian Soldiers, and also some Varanguards for Palmina are standing to protect them all.

* * *

The afternoon concert went very well. Palmina played also a solo composed by Palma and a solo composed by Palmina on her lutes.
After the concerts a lot of Chinese servants brought fresh cooked Chinese traditional food, some specially adapted for the European taste.

Palma went to the stage to see Palmina and he asked the musicians if he can try out the traditional Asian Instruments.

»Oh, you know how to hold a traditional Pipa¹ lute and to make a few tones…?« a very young Chinese musician in white traditional Asian cloth said friendly smiling.
She allowed him to play on her Pipa and Palma played and (he tried it) played.
»Thank you, Xie Xie«, Palma said smiling after he played (tryed) a long time
Later Palma tried the traditional GuZheng² instrument and made some tones.
»Oh, that’s interesting…I would like to learn to play…«

¹ Pipa – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pipa
² GuZheng – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guzheng

The musician smiled and said »Signore Palma il Giovane, you painted us so beautiful in the last years here in Venice. If we can take painting lessons from you, here in our gardens we would feel very honoured. If you like, our talented princess can teach you and show you the secrets of our Asian culture and arts, especially of our music. They would love to explain you how this instruments are played. And…, and if you like you can write some music for our little Ming-Dynasty-Orchestra…«
And Palma was surprised for this friendly invitation.
»Palma, say yes! This is a big honour…!«, Palmina said.
Palmina was 2 years in China at the pacific island and learned not only the language a little bit, she knows how Asian people are fealing inside their heart.

»During I am in Vienna you will be here with the Ming Dynasty Family, here on that little beautiful secure Island in our Republic.«

Palma made a big sigh because he will miss Palmina and agreed to that big honour of cultural exchange.
Yes, Palma wants to learn about Asian cultures. Palmina lived on that Pacific Island for years. It is now a part of Palmina’s live and experience. He wants to understand this because he loves her.
»Yes, we have to learn from each other. The East from us West and we, West from your Eastern traditions.«

The little musician in the white beautiful cloth said: »Marco Polo was a Venetian and he married a Buddhist nun, a real Chinese Princess and lived here on that Island with her, the Chinese legend is telling.«

And as he saw that her eyes shined very beautifully Palma begun to study her eyes to be prepared to paint her and to teach her and to give her painting lessons in the future.

»I see you both are understanding very well, hm?«, Palmina said and hoped that Palma will manage now the time without her here in Venice.

»And..and…can I have some Violin lessons by your mother…Xíng ma?« the little Chinese Princess asked innocent and hoped that Palma will say yes.

* * *

The beautiful and ceremonial afternoon transformed into a long evening with lanterns – Chinese lanterns and Venetian Lanterns – with Chinese music and Venetian music from the 16th century.

It was a little fine feast and all enjoyed it but Palma did know that if Palmina will now go to Vienna with her orchestra and some Chinese delegation Palma will be again lonely for a long time.
Again it is a sponsored concert tour. Will Palma again have to wait on Palmina for years?

* * *

And after they saw this Peony-Vision at this 23 o clock time (11 p.m.) they dreamed what they say today at the »Giardino«-Garden. Palmina and Palma remembered this and they saw this in their Peony Vision sitting together now at the Peony-Gondola:

* * *

Today they saw a white Pigeon at the Giardino of South Venice and the Pigeon landed on a leave.

dav

picture 3 – white pigeon

In their dream the Pigeon spoke to them with a soft voice:

»Dear Palma and Palmina! Be careful the next time! The Criminal Church of Security took money from the Administrators of the Dark Sugar Earth Network to make an attack to you. Don’t go alone on the streets of Venice. Stay at the Chinese Family at their gardens. For a while the Titian Art School should take place there. Till the secret service of the republic found out and arrest the criminals of the international child-prostitution network stay at them as long as you can. There are good security Elite-soldiers protecting you. Chinese Soldiers and Venetian Soldiers and Varangian Guards¹!«


¹ Varangian Guard -Wikipedia –
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varangian_Guard

»The Varangian Guard (Greek: Τάγμα τῶν Βαράγγων, Tágma tōn Varángōn) was an elite unit of the Byzantine Army, from the 10th to the 14th centuries, whose members served as personal bodyguards to the Byzantine Emperors.«


Palma and Palmina looked surprised to the white speaking pigeon.

»And you Palmina, be careful: One of the Bodyguards is a FAKE BODYGUARD and he is paid by the international child-prostitution-network of the Dark Sugar Earth Dealers. He wants to isolate you and destroy your concert-career in Vienna. He has orders not to allow cultural exchange with the famous artists of Vienna so that no one will know your name as lute player in music history. Don’t trust him, don’t eat his dark sugar earth. He cancels your artist contacts and meetings without your permission! And don’t be alone with a man or a fake priest (an »Ostary³« which wears false priest cloth). The false Bodyguard will try to isolate you the whole concert in order to destroy your future music career. Don’t be alone with any man in a room also if this bodyguard said that this is expected from you otherwise you will loose your position as solist. Order always two, listen: two soldiers to protect you: A Chinese Soldier and an European Soldier. Good luck Palma and Palmina. Groo, Grooooo.«.

³ »Ostiarius« – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ostiarius
Is NOT priest, »In the Roman Catholic Church, this „porter“ became the lowest of the four minor orders prescribed by the Council of Trent. This was the first order a seminarian…«

dav

picture 4 –  starting white pigeon

After that the white Pigeon started to fly high in the heaven and was not seen after a while.

dav

picture 5 – heart leave

As Palma looked down to earth he saw that old leave.
It had a tiny hole like a heart.

»The white Pigeon showed us to find this symbol of an old, old, old love, my Wang Chun chao – my Marco-Polo Princess, My Du Liniang, My Palmina, my white Pigeon.«

Palmina laid her head on Palma’s beating heart and Palma reacted with putting his strong arm around his little Palmina Albina.

She thought also on the old vision of the little yellow canary bird in the wooden cage who will inspire the most famous composer of Europe to do his artwork in over 100 years.

And they heard now this mystic music:

And as they heard in their Vision the »The Peony Gondola Song« Palma and Palmina saw in their vision a few other Peony Gondolas flying.

And Palma felt now a tender soft kiss on his left cheek after Palmina hold his right hand in his dreaming, and Palma could feel it and was smiling full of luck.

Palma thought: »Not every artists gets such a pure and fine soul as inspiring painting-music Peony Gondola friend. I have to be thankful every day that I have my Pigeon, my Inspiration, my Lute painting Palmina.«

A lot of Peony Gondolas flew soft and slow along the heaven.

»Look, Palmina there is »Saint Clara and Saint Franciscus…the famous spiritual loving pair. Oh look their hearts are glowing for heart-to-heart love.« also in a Peony Gondola.

»Yes, Palmina, they love each other with there soul, their spirit and with their hearts…Saint Clara is Saint Francis spiritual inspiring girl-friend. And they never stopped to love each other.«

And they heard a music like that:

https://youtu.be/eKNiIPyl77w
Palma was playing the Viola and expressing with each note in this music piece and tender kiss and Palmina’s talented hands and arms (of course, always at an other position).

»Wow, but Saint Franciscans of Assisi, the author of the Cantico delle Creature, was not a priest…?«, Palmina asked innocently.

»Yes, to love someone, you need not to be a priest.«

»Did Doctor Martinus, who was a catholic monk did he marry a Christian-catholic nun? And did they really found a new Christian tradition? Is that the reason why the »Trident Consilium«¹ in Trient was opened…hm? I mean, he was also not a priest, this Doctor Martinus… Also not a priest like saint Francis?«


¹ Trident Consilium – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Council_of_Trent

»The Council of Trent (Latin: Concilium Tridentinum), held between 1545 and 1563 in Trent (or Trento, in northern Italy), was the 19th ecumenical council of the Catholic Church.[1] Prompted by the Protestant Reformation, it has been described as the embodiment of the Counter-Reformation.«

»The Council issued condemnations of what it defined to be heresies committed by proponents of Protestantism, and also issued key statements and clarifications of the Church’s doctrine and teachings, including scripture, the Biblical canon, sacred tradition, original sin, justification, salvation, the sacraments, the Mass and the veneration of saints.[4] The Council met for twenty-five sessions between 13 December 1545 and 4 December 1563.[5] Pope Paul III, who convoked the Council, oversaw the first eight sessions (1545–47), while the twelfth to sixteenth sessions (1551–52) were overseen by Pope Julius III and the seventeenth to twenty-fifth sessions (1562–63) by Pope Pius IV.«


* * *

– Oh, look fast, Palma: Marco Polo and his Buddhist nun, his wife, the Chinese Princess! Also together in a Peony Gondola – Spiritual Love with different traditions!«

»Yes, like you and me…«

They looked how this Peony Gondola moved along the pink-white clouds.

»It looks so harmonic and full of peace..«

»Look there is another Peony Gondola with Dante and Beatrice ! Dante writes 100 Cantici for her, how deep his love is, to dedicate her such a great Poesie! This is spiritual love!«

»And here is Liu Mengmei and Du Linang from the PEONY PAVILLION – Their love goes beyond time and space – death and life – they first met only in their secret dreams in the Peony Pavilion!«

»There is the Saint John of Cross**) and the Saint Terese from Avila***) – A deep spiritual love and friendship!«

»Yes, Palmina. They had been also in Venice. He held a speech in our Titian School and he got some painting lessons from me and she, Terese from Avila, met him in our Titian-School, sitting in the audience, and I painted her in a painting ***). And as they spoke with each other they suddenly flew a few meters above the earth, we all could see it, like to be together in a invisible Peony-Gondola¹. The Symbol of spiritual love and deep and heartfelt love and friendship«.

»Charles Borromeo (Italian: Carlo Borromeo, Latin: Carolus Borromeus, 2 October 1538 – 3 November 1584) was Roman Catholic archbishop of Milan from 1564 to 1584 and a cardinal. «

He is called as the »Savior of the church music and protector of girls and children against child-prostitution.«

And they were all sitting in their Peony Gondolas, waved friendly to Palma and Palmina.
Palma and Palmina waved friendly back.
»Look, the saints of all traditions, we are dreaming in this vision,…They are greeting us!«, Palmina said like an innocent deer.

* * *

And as the music of the »Peony Gondola Song« was finished Palmina laid again her head back on Palma’s heart to hear his heart which was beating for her in deep love.

»Oh, my saint spirit inspiration. My Pigeon. My Palmina!«
»Oh, My painter, my composer and writer. My Palma il Giovane!«

And now they saw this Peony Gondola Vision:

* * *

Palma was sitting in one of his little ateliers at the »Furlani«. Right, beside is the Chiesa San Antonio and left, beside it the »scuola«

picture 04 - Palma's little atelier (Nr 3291, left beside the House Nr 3292)

picture 04 – Palma’s little atelier (Nr. 3291, left beside the House Nr. 3292)

He was painting as young Cardinal which played a big role at the Trident Concilium*) in the catholic Church, which is very mighty in this century.

»Jacopo Palma il Giovane. You are a very talented painter. You lived so long in Rome at the embassy. Your talent was discovered by Lord Rovero**). I saw a lot of famous paintings by you, Palma, here in Venice. You are really a famous artist here. I think you are one of the most well known persons here in Venice, isn’t it?

»Oh, thank you your excellency. I feel honoured by your positive words.
Yes, but I try to be silent in the public. I try to support the »La Zitelle« girls and its orchestra and musicians and teachers with my own compositions.«

»Oh with your own compositions! This is a good idea: To make a kind of music therapeutic creation for them to overcome their trauma of child-prostitution.
I founded a lot of institutions all over Europe to save these girls and to protect them from child-prostitution…Did you know? But the evil dark sugar network is fighting against this….not only in Venice I think.«
»Yes I know. We all know it here in the Republic of Venice…There are evil networks supporting the dark sugar earth social network of child Prostitution. Our Music-Projects are a way to help the children and young women…«

»You have also problems here in Venice with them. They are an evil network internationally…
Palma what should we do to save the old music-tradition in Europe? Some want to destroy church music like the dark sugar earth network is doing it. «

»I have an idea: Give orders that Pierluigi da Palestrina *****) in Rome; he should compose a new traditional saint mass with 6 voices. He should compose it for the Pope. This „Pape Macelli“*) will save our music in Europe!«


*) »Missa Papae Marcelli« by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, Missa Papae Marcelli.
– Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missa_Papae_Marcelli

»It was believed that the simple, declamatory style of Missa Papae Marcelli convinced Cardinal Carlo Borromeo, on hearing, that polyphony could be intelligible, and that music such as Palestrina’s was all too beautiful to ban from the Church. In 1607, the composer Agostino Agazzari wrote: […] « (read more at wikipedia)

Cardinal Borromeo was for a long time very silent and was thinking. Palma continued to draw him for a while and as they finished today’s paintings session Cardinal Borromeo and Palma il Giovane stood up.

The Cardinal put both hands on the head of Palma il Giovane and spoke very ceremonial:

»I bless your artworks and I bless your music compositions. May you always see the way of the saint spirit in your life. May a »saint spirit pigeon« be with you for your whole life and inspire you to your great artworks.«

And he blessed Palma il Giovane and Palma saw in a Vision a pure white Pigeon and then he saw Palmina smiling to him during this Vision.

As he went out of the little atelier they went to the right side, a few steps along the »Fondamenta dei Furlani« and entered the »Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni« to pray there. (This is all along the Rio de la Pieta, near the Chiesa »San Antonin« and near to Palmina’s bakery)

Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni – Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scuola_di_San_Giorgio_degli_Schiavoni

»The Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni in Venice, northern Italy, was one of the city’s historical scuole (confraternity houses). «


Here at this »Suola« Palma il Giovane’s students made also some paintings.
A nun came and explained them friendly that Palma made here some beautiful paintings for these rooms, and also at the chapel in the first floor.
And Cardinale Borromeo did look interested at Palma’s artworks and all the servants where following him.
After he prayed a servant said:
»Your excellency today you will have a big speech in the big famous cathedral of Venice. Do you want to prepare your excellency for that and have a meal?«

* * *

And they saw also in their Vision that Cardinale Borromeo is holding a long big speech in the San Marco Cathedral.
Hundreds of people are listening his words and they are standing also outside at the San Marco Place.
»…And we have to protect our children from child-prostitution! (applause) Especially our »La Zitelle«-Institution, here in Venice at our little Giudecca Island. It was founded by a good women and we have also to protect the members of that beautiful La Zitelle girls orchestra and choir..« (Very big and long applause) »…We have to protect them from secret attacks and intrigues by the forbidden dark sugar earth criminal network administrators. They have much money and they pay much money against the victims of child prostitution to make them silent. They plunder the rich and slave the poor, they enjoy their criminal life.« („Boo“ crying people) »And even there is only one priest, here, who supports this criminal network then tell it to me. And even If I die, I will come personally from the heaven with the saint angels to protect these girls and children from their enemy…«

And all on the cathedral applauded, some called:
»Bravi, Bravi,…save our children, save our poor girls…Save our »La Zitelle«-Institution
against these criminal administrators…Bravi, bravi.«
»Cardinale for papa! – We want you as our pope!«
»It is a pity that we don’t have him as our Cardinale in our Republic.«
»…he is a living Saint…This cardinal fights for the poor, for the ill, for the children, he is against child-prostitution, he is the savor of the church music…«
»Long live our Cardinale Borromeo!!! Let us stand with him!«
»Yes, he is the man who speaked for us in Rome.«
And there was a long applause in this huge San Marco Cathedral with its beautiful golden Mosaics.

And the Choir on the left side, up in the cathedral, where Palmina sat with her Lute with the other musicians, were ready and waited till Master Claudio Monteverdi gives the sign to start to perform the music Composition »Cum sancto spiritu – Fugue«, composed by Palma il Giovane
And Palma il Giovane was sitting in the first row of the honour guests of Venice and looked up to Palmina, up there in the music-heaven, in this San Marco Cathedral and she looked down to him, smiling, being very lucky that he composed this polyphonic music, dedicated to his saint spirit pigeon, expressing the dance of the saints and angels in the heaven. (This music can also be danced by a good ballet group)

And then they sung and played like that:

Cardinale looked up to the heaven and listened.

»What musicians and composers they have here in Venice. Like the Angels in the Heaven…this music helps our La Zitelle girls, yes, this music…«

And as they saw this Peony Vision Palma said:
»You see Palmina, we have not only enemies from the church. There are also saints! »Yes, Palma, savers of the music and protectors of the children!«

**) Guidobaldo II della Rovere, Duke of Urbino
– Wikepedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guidobaldo_II_della_Rovere,_Duke_of_Urbino

»In 1567 Guidobaldo II della Rovere, duke of Urbino, recognized Palma’s talents, supporting him for four years and sending him to Rome, where he remained until about 1572. Shedding most remnants of Roman manner after his return to Venice, Palma adopted the inescapable models and mannerisms of Tintoretto. His early biographers assert that he found a place in the ageing Titian’s workshop; when the master died, Palma stepped in to finish his last work, the Pietà in the Accademia, Venice. Palma’s first major public commission arrived after a 1577 fire in the Doge’s Palace: three scenes in its grand council hall.« – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palma_il_Giovane
