 .."With their first album these two talented women step forth and establish a strong musical identity.  Drawing on Medieval and Renaissance music of the British Isles for materials and inspiration, they have created a musical tapestry woven from their voices, dulcimers and their striking arrangements.

AEOLUS: .."With their first album these two talented women step forth and establish a strong musical identity.  Drawing on Medieval and Renaissance music of the British Isles for materials and inspiration, they have created a musical tapestry woven from their voices, dulcimers and their striking arrangements.
--WALNUT VALLEY OCCASIONAL  
AEOLUS:This 1981 recording, which they have described as an "inward, Winter album" has a contemplative pace, as though we are hearing these songs-tales really around a winter's fire. This album is a collection of traditional British Isles ballads, songs and instrumental pieces, including original songs set to traditional folk melodies. So compelling is the vision of this album, that the Dulcimer Players News says, "if you've ever wondered how time travel would feel, listen to the music of Ruth Barrett and Cyntia Smith."
"...their entire approach is very artistic, refined and aesthetically elegant...In a world which so often rewards gaudy sensationalism and in which traditional notions of beauty are constantly being maligned, the music of Barrett and Smith is undeniably and unapologetically beautiful...This is lovely music, lovingly performed and presented."
                                           
---FOLK SCENE MAGAZINE

 "This is one of the most beautiful records ever made."
