Apparently, Vedran from Bosnia-Herzegovina would play his cello during the siege of Sarajevo amongst the ruins. He later moved to Northern Ireland.
The music is by or attributed to Tomaso Albinoni. it started as a fragment by Albinoni found by 20th-century musicologist, Albinoni biographer, Remo Giazotto who then finished it.
… my old history teacher liked to start and started a longer monologue… depending on the attitude of the students, some bowed out with interest while the others leaned back relaxed… soon the first eyes fell… I thought it was quite exciting… Researchers in ancient pyramids who were subsequently killed by the curse of the pharaoh, or a certain Mr. Schliemann who believed in the legend of Troy, began to dig through a mountain and found at least 12 different Troys, including treasure and gold… what does the weekly Sunday crime scene offer… with the slight mischief of chief investigators and super-rich top criminals… So it was obvious that I wanted to become such a superstar archiologist myself, no wonder if you are driven past a water castle in a pram, from which horrible secret passages protruded… the archbishops of Osnabrück had laid them out, which in the castle far away from their starving and praying contemporaries very gladly drank one over the thirst, ladies accompaniment and buffet of course included… I got stuck halfway and became a photographer… but it’s also very much related to discovery… We are drawn to scary Lost Places and no castle ruins in Germany that are not photographed postcards from bottom to top… So it came that I immediately set out when I got my hands on a photo of that castle ruin that plays the main role here… Spectacularly situated on a rock high above the landscape, below the town of Flossenbürg, which is a not very famous, not to say … shameful… The historical symbol of what people do to other people is … Shortly before the end of the war, German resistance fighters were executed in the local concentration camp…. The castle alone stands above it… it was built in the 1100th century. the archaeologists say… Well, I don’t think anything I don’t fake myself… I have seen and have climbed the whole mountain, and despite the fear of the castle ghost I have examined the plant without regard for head and collar… I’m still going to be famous because I found a contemporary photo in the rubble that shows the castle at a clearly earlier time than the 1100th century… hach , my history teacher would proudly say: Once upon a time my bravest student set out to pull the final truth of the castle out of the dust….Photoshop be THANKS 🙂
The song is in there, it has to be smoothed out, like when you used to get chocolate bars wrapped in tin-foil and you’d smooth them out with your fingers.
Firstly I discovered that by putting in triplets I got the rhythm in place. I’m still not sure about the melody and I keep looking for ways to beef it up a bit. I keep changing the chord progression.
The second part of the second (super) verse is beginning to shape up in a completely different way. It is though a contrast to the first (super) verse of Chris’ poem. It amazes me that she maybe unconsciously formed the poem that way.
At first, I was going to make verse 1 to the minor key and verse 2 to the major key but . . . it’s too rigid that way I think.
The chorus I like it now, but because it is so short I repeat it. Also, the song is only going to last about two minutes and I wonder if this is too short.
The guitar rhythm part is a little better than it was. It too goes through a lot of changes.
