-THE HEART IS THE ONLY NATION 1993.

.The duo's 1993 release, The Heart is the Only Nation, celebrates our connection with the natural world, the passion of life, and the healing of the human heart.  For the past 15 years, Ruth Barrett and Cyntia Smith have been at the forefront of the Women's Spirituality movement by creating original songs and instrumentals celebrating the Earth's seasonal cycles and the Goddess mythic imagery.  Their musical vision is of the power and love at the heart of life, expressed in poetry and strikingly beautiful arrangements that features the fretted dulcimer and their voices.
..."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 are simply the best creators of devotional music to the Goddess today."             ----THE BELTANE PAPERS
.."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."
