The title of this cd comes from a poem by Andreas Gryphius (1616-1664), an important German poet
Constanz: When you reach Konstanz harbour you’ll see a revolving Statue (9 meters and 18 tons). Built in 1993 by Peter Lenk the sculpture is called ‘Imperia’. In her streched-out hands she holds 2 jugglers, one bearing a king’s – the other wearing a pope’s crown, symbolizing the powers of church and state.
