Don Shirley – Orpheus in the Underworld – Band 3 – 1956:
Orpheus now wandered aimlessly through the land playing sad tunes and singing of his grief. At length, unable to bear his sorrow any longer, Orpheus appealed to Jupiter to grant him permission to go to the Underworld to ask Hades for his beautiful bride. Such a thing had never before been granted to a mortal. But Jupiter conceded.
Don Shirley, an improvisation based on the story of “Orpheus in the Underworld” (Cadence, 1956). Digital conversion from original vinyl to high-quality .mp3 via Audacity (audacityteam.org).
