here is my recording of the new song:
I will upload other tracks from the sound check soon.
Did anyone else catch the Blessings?what I think I heard over the Italian voices was some Hebrew, which if I'm right Leonard translated " May the Lord bless you and keep you, and may He let His light shine upon you "... I recognised as being used in the [Roman Catholic] Mass, and I guess it's from the Bible. There was no " Whither thou goest".
Vulcan? This puzzled me. At first I thought you meant Vivaldi, Venice being the home of the "Red Priest". So I consulted the modern day oracle, Wikipedia, and learned this is a salute created for Star Trek. I am probably the only one on this Forum who knows nothing about Star Trek. Apparently, this salute is based on the Blessing gesture used by a Kohen (like our LC) during Synagogue worship services. (Look to the right at my avatar -a scan of the LC keychain- to see the actual Blessing gesture with both hands.)Tom Sakic wrote: it was very loud and full of screaming from the audience, so I didn't hear a word. Later on the photos I saw that LC even made Vulcan salute (from his drawings) during the blessing.
Again, maybe I am the only one here who doesn't know this. Does this mean that there is repository somewhere with hundreds of hours of recordings from this tour's concerts?I will only add that there was no jumbo screens in Venice, so this will remain one of rare non-filmed concerts - maybe it's appropriate it was one of the best. The work of art has to keep his aura.

Seal of The Blessing To End Disunity
Thank you Tom for your continued enlightenment on this concert. I note from your original review on Venice you report that their was something unusual in the air. I also detected this. During the sound check his quip of 'can someone remove that building' (the Basilica or campo tower?) was something I thought I had misheard! I always think of LC as thoughtful and serious. When I hear him speak it is slow and deliberate, pausing to choose his words. During the sound check, and to some extent in the show, he was playful with a little mischief perhaps. His speech snappy & humorous.It was truly magical. I was interested to read that we will be able to download concert footage. What a pity that their is no recording of my two favourite shows, (Manchester Opera house first show and Venice)Tom Sakic wrote:I don't know what happened in Venice on Monday, but above the "usual perfection" (that sounds horrible;) of the band and Leonard's standard superb delivery, there was something in the air, at least when Leonard himself was in question.
You know - I was just going to ask about this. Last night I posted some videos in the Lisbon thread that someone had put on Vimeo - and they are, I believe, almost entirely taken from the "big screen" - but contain fantastic shots of Leonard and his band and singers.jarkko wrote:EVERY concert since the beginning of the tour has been recorded on audio by the tour management, in perfect quality from the sound board . However, it remains to be seen whether or not the online shop with official downloads will come true. A lot of rights issues have to be solved first.
Thanks! They do a great job. Actually - it has been the same at shows I have attended of other artists. Excellent job.jarkko wrote:Professional camera crews do the filming at venues that have the big screens. Last fall all European concerts were taped with many cameras in HD quality in 16:9 ratio for future use of Leonard and his management!
I believe I saw Dino giving the Vulcan salute in at least one video?Tom Sakic wrote:bridger15,
