In Ancient Greek mythology, the troubadour Orpheus had the ability to charm any living creature on Earth with his beautiful and deeply emotional songs. One day, his love was taken from him after succumbing to the venom of snakes, and Orpheus descended to Hades to bring Eurydice back to life. Despite playing music that made Hades weep, he broke his vow to not look back at Eurydice as they returned to Earth, and slowly he watched her vanish before his eyes. From there, there was a constant air of concern, not only for Orpheus’ well-being, but also for his poetry and music. How could someone who faced such loss continue, and if they did, how would they sound?
