"Passionate Pilgrim" is an artful, rock-infused song cycle with Baroque instrumentation. The project is a collaboration between Oracle Hysterical and Juilliard-trained period ensemble New Vintage Baroque. Texts from the album are drawn from "The Passionate Pilgrim," a poem cycle once (falsely) attributed to “W. Shakespeare.” The album was called “music that is unstuck in time” by the Wall Street Journal, and what it would sound like if “Belle and Sebastian were to cut a record of Baroque-inspired folk songs,” by the New Yorker.
