Cult-of-Orpheus

Cult of Orpheus is the poetic song vehicle of Portland composer C. A. Corbell. Singers include Hannah Penn, Benjamin Bell, Catherine Olson and Justin. Original folk-chamber ensemble The Waking Guild also perform.

Songs presented feature texts from The Dhammapada, Rainer Maria Rilke, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Catullus, Charles Baudelaire, Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Gerard Manley Hopkins. An accomplished indie singer/songwriter, Corbell draws equally from the classical art-song tradition and modern songwriting practices. Instrumental accompaniment on the pieces vary and include piano, string trio, cello and guitar duo.
