These are partial clips of the songs.

This recording celebrates the connection with the natural world, the passion of life, and the healing of the human heart. The duo has been musical pioneers in the Women’s Spirituality movement; creating original songs and instrumentals celebrating the Earth’s seasonal cycles and Goddess mythic imagery. Their musical vision is the power and love at the heart of life, expressed in poetry and strikingly beautiful arrangements that feature the fretted dulcimers and their voices.

Ruth and Cyntia are simply the best creators of devotional music to the Goddess today.”   ~The Beltane Papers

“The poetry alone is beautiful, and when set to modal tunes with clarinet, tamburica bass, and cello in addition to dulcimers is at times quite moving. The 66 minute recording, taken as a whole, is a soulful exploration of Ruth and Cyntia’s creed, set forth in the title song.” ~Dulcimer Players News

“Ruth and Cyntia have once again created a world of music for us to escape to. Using their ethereal voices and almost forgotten traditional instruments, they spin a web of magic. Everyone who has had the privilege of sharing this experience has loved it.” ~Hecate’s Loom
