This album is Ruth Barrett and Cyntia Smith’s first all-instrumental recording and features favorite selections from their first three releases, Aeolus, Music of the Rolling World, and Deepening) plus new traditional pieces and original compositions by Cyntia Smith.

“Consistently satisfying and interesting arrangements. A highlight for me is Cyntia’s playing on Pavan by Luis Milan, the Lesson For Two Lutes, and Soleares, a traditional Flamenco form. Each of the three pieces is a technical tour de force and a clear demonstration of the musical capabilities of what was once thought to be a very limited instrument.”   ~Dulcimer Players News

This is a stunning showcase for the incredible talents of these two dulcimer artists. Noteworthy is Cyntia Smith’s composition Dales Emerson Foye, which features Daniel Bienenfeld on concertina and has one of the loveliest melodies I’ve ever heard. Cyntia’s dulcimer arrangement of Soleares, adapted from traditional Flamenco, is spectacular. This recording is recommended for all audiences.”  ~The Dulcimer Society of Northern Illinois

Released 1991
