The hidden song from Hell. What secret message left Hieronymus Bosch?
A young woman claims that she composed a song using musical notes hidden in a famous painting of Hieronymus Bosch.
While studying with a friend the triptych “Garden of Earthly Delights” by Hieronymus Bosch, the blogger Amelia noticed an interesting detail. On the backside of a character who was tortured in hell, there were drawn musical notes.
Excited by this discovery, Amelia decided to compose music using those notes and trying to meet the musical style of the era.
The Piano version of the musical fragment was published on the Internet and then someone wrote the lyrics, thus appearing the choral version:
Hieronymus Bosch was a Dutch painter who lived from 1453 to 1516. His paintings illustrate a fantastic and grotesque vision of human depravity and sin.
The triptych “The Garden of Earthly Delights” is considered the most important work of his. It was made between 1503-1504, for the King of Spain, Philip II.
