Friday Music: The Wedding Song (Anais Mitchell)
This is another song from Anais Mitchell's folk opera Hadestown. Here is a song about the marriage of Orpheus and Eurydice in which she wants to know just how this wedding is going to happen, times being what they are.
We don't traditionally do weddings in Lent, but I love this song.
Here's Mitchell singing both parts, with harmonies by Jefferson Hamer, live at Joe's Pub in New York City a few years ago.
