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.

225. Happy Birthday, Palma il Giovane!

225. Happy Birthday, Palma il Giovane!

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. They persisted through the classical period, and even survived into the late 19th century in some areas, for example in Italy.
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.
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]

223. Traditional Dialogue of Cultures in Venice

223. Traditional Dialogue of Cultures in Venice

 

picture 01 - Palma_il_Giovane_-_Doge_Pietro_Loredan_Beseeching_the_Virgin_-_WGA16909
picture – Palma il Giovane -Doge Pietro Loredan*) Beseeching the Virgin (Wikipedia)

This Painting by Palma il Giovane is on the big famous Dogan“s Palace (Palazzo Ducale) where always delegations of different cultures officially had a intercultural friendship event as peace DIALOGUE between the mighty Republic of Venice and the business partners from all over the world like Europe, Asia and Africa.

* * *

They continued to dream their Peony Gondola Vision like that:

* * *

„Oh, so much Cultures we have on this world. Fantastic!!!!l „, Palmina said like a young girl with her soft fine voice and continued smiling with this asian-like beautiful eyes:

„…this beautiful different cultures with their different music and art traditions,… fantastic…
our world is so big, I would like to huge it ..“, Palmina said and hugged Palma.

„..this beautiful cultures are often visiting Venice, our mighty Republic of Venice the – R.O.V. and I often play at the welcome concert in the Dogan’s Palace on our San Marco Place…often an artwork from you or from me…“, Palmina said euphoric.

„…From all over the world the representative of their culture are coming and greeting our Republic from Europe Asia, Africa. From Thailand, Vietnam, Bangladesh, China, Cipan (Japan), Korea, Philippines, Russia…Armenia, Cyprus- Byzantium…bringing a message to us of peace and friendship…They want all a peacefull relation, a cultural dialogue to our mighty Republic of Venice and of course good economic relations with us Europeans…“, Palma said very wise.

picture 2-3 – detail of Palmas painting in the Palazzo Ducale (Dogan’s Palace) in Venice

„So it is important that all cultures are in a harmonic peaceful relation…in a good DIALOGUE!
…Palma, didn’t you compose a music dialogue for Chinese lute Pipa (or other Chinese or other Asian Instruments) and Viola da braccio as the Chinese delegation did visit our Republic with their huge Chinese ships, waiting outside the „Lido“, coming with hundreds of guests to bring a peaceful culture program, a cultural exchange dialogue concert? Didn’t you?“

„Oh yes, I will never forget this. It was years ago…Oh, Palmina, my Dialogue for Pipa琵琶 and Viola. Do you remember the begining melody?“, Palma asked.

Palmina took her Lute and plugged slowly and smiling with shining eyes, only a girl or a women has, if she is loving…

G-d-e-a

Palmina smiled to Palma and send to his heart a warm and golden, tender light energy playing her lute.

Palma could feel this also in his deep heart.

After that,now Palma took his Viola and plugged:

c-g-d‘-a‘

„Do you remember, Palmina?“

„Yes, your composition you wrote as Dialogue for my instrument and your instrument…It was dedicated as dialogue between the East Cultures and the West Cultures between the Ming Dynasty representatives and Venice.
Yes, Palma, I remember very good and I love this creation from you very much!“

picture 04

Palmina gave Palma a tender kiss on his cheek and Palma could feel this.

Now Palma composed deep in his heart a music reflection and variation to the main „Dialogue Music Theme“, the main melody of this dialogue composition like that and Palmina put her head and Palma’s side to hear this music coming directly from Palma’s heart and what she listened was this:

*) Pietro Loredan

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pietro_Loredan_(doge)

Pietro Loredan (born Venice, Italy 1482 – died Venice, 3 May 1570) was the 84th Doge of Venice. He reigned from 1567 to 1570.

172. »Mars passing the Neptune moon system« in 400 years

172. »Mars passing the Neptune moon system« in 400 years

picture - Neptune seen from its Moon Triton, who has the same size than planet Mars

picture – Neptune seen from its Moon Triton, who has the same size than planet Mars

»Oh wonderful, Palma. A whole cosmic Organ music piece, played only for me. I love you. I am so proud of you.«

»In around 400 years, on the 7th of December of the year 2018 will be a special day: Mars passing the Neptune moon system«

And Palmina hold Palma’s right hand and he could feel it and Palma was lucky.

»2 days ago you played for me on your Pipa. Thank you, Palmina. My heart could feel it. It was a wonderful music. From your heart to my heart. I love you my Inspiration, my Saint Cecilia, my Pipa princess Wang Chao-chun. 王昭君«

»Oh, it is ok. I love you too. Even we can not see us we can think on each other every day, if you also want, Palma… my painter, my composer, my writer, my astronomer. Hm, I think you are a little astronomer….«, Palmina answered smiling.
»Neptune is the planet of music and art…«, Palma kissed Palmina, tender soft and short.

Now the Peony Gondola started to move to a new vision in 400 years:

And they saw at 23 o‘ clock together in their Peony Gondola suddenly the same astronomic event from three cosmic perspectives:

»Look at that three perspectives:…«, Palma il Giovane explained to his beloved Palmina

» 1. View from the moon Phobos¹ of Planet Mars. Phobos is moving within 7,5 hours one time around Planet Mars (3x times a Mars-day or earth day).

2. View from moon Triton of planet Neptune. This moon Triton² has the same size like planet Mars and also a thin atmosphere. (We can say a planet like Mars is moving around Neptune)

3. View from moon Despina of Neptune. Despina is much nearer to Neptune as Triton and is moving around Neptune very fast…«

Palmina put her head and his side and he put his arm around her during this Peony Vision in their Peony Gondola.
And suddenly they heard in their vision a music which was inspired by Palma’s Saint Cecilia and Saint Lucy. Saint Cecilia inspired this composition like a little tweeting yellow canary bird.

Both felt the inspiration:

VIDEO ² : [ » Mars passing the Neptune moon system«]  https://youtu.be/u-4Hqa437qA

(to be continued…)


¹ Phobos – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phobos_(moon)

»Phobos (/ˈfoʊbəs/ FOH-bəs, /-bɒs/ -boss,[4] from Greek Φόβος; systematic designation: Mars I) is the innermost and larger of the two natural satellites of Mars,[5] the other being Deimos. Both moons were discovered in 1877 by American astronomer Asaph Hall.

Phobos is a small, irregularly shaped object with a mean radius of 11 km (7 mi)[1] and is seven times as massive as the outer moon, Deimos. Phobos is named after the Greek god Phobos, a son of Ares (Mars) and Aphrodite (Venus)«

² Triton – Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triton_(moon)

»Triton is the largest natural satellite of the planet Neptune, and the first Neptunian moon to be discovered. The discovery was made on October 10, 1846, by English astronomer William Lassell. It is the only large moon in the Solar System with a retrograde orbit, an orbit in the direction opposite to its planet’s rotation.[2][11] At 2,710 kilometres (1,680 mi)[5] in diameter, it is the seventh-largest moon in the Solar System. Because of its retrograde orbit and composition similar to Pluto’s, Triton is thought to have been a dwarf planet captured from the Kuiper belt.[12] It has a surface of mostly frozen nitrogen, a mostly water-ice crust,[13] an icy mantle and a substantial core of rock and metal. The core makes up two-thirds of its total mass. The mean density is 2.061 g/cm3,[5] reflecting a composition of approximately 15–35% water ice.

Triton is one of the few moons in the Solar System known to be geologically active (the others being Jupiter’s Io and Europa, and Saturn’s Enceladus and Titan). As a consequence, its surface is relatively young, with few obvious impact craters. Intricate cryovolcanic and tectonic terrains suggest a complex geological history. Part of its surface has geysers erupting sublimated nitrogen gas, contributing to a tenuous nitrogen atmosphere less than 1/70,000 the pressure of Earth’s atmosphere at sea level.[6] It is the second-largest planetary moon in relation to its primary, after Earth’s moon.«

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.

        picture 5a - Saint Cecilia with Angel

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.«
