Read: "Woman Of Constant Sorrow: Sarah Kirkland Snider's 'Penelope'"on NPR

Kirkland's dark-hued score is inventive and subtle, with a mix of watery, undulating strings, guitars, percussion and electronics that submerges you completely within the story.

Some songs flaunt melodic hooks, others are atmospheric. And all are aided by Worden's vocals, mournful, urgent and expressive. Brad Lubman conducts the tight little chamber ensemble known as Signal.

The Shara Worden and the yMusic ensemble will perform the hour-long cycle in its entirety Oct. 18th at New York's Le Poisson Rouge.
