Super CD! Different but Accessible and Beautiful.
"Penelope" is a song cycle describing the return of a battle-damaged man to his wife. It consists of a haunting, minimalist-type string ensemble and non-classical percussion accompanying Sarah Snider's beautiful and haunting voice.
The lyrics are intertwined with Homer's "Odyssey", which adds to the reflective but eventually uplifting mood of the story. Although the music is quite unusual, it is expertly performed and immediately accessible; my wife and I loved it from the first note.
If you like music that doesn't necessarily fit the "classical" label but is a true piece of art, I highly recommend you get this.more....
