Here, the reponse to the many requests for the Lyrics to Mother of the World

Mother of the World
Father of the Skies
Child of the Stars
Come forth
And hear our prayer
Heal our Earth


Considered "a first-rate album by an artist in her prime," Set Free deserves a place next to the symphonic space-music classic of Novus Magnificat. This release journeys even deeper into the intensely moving electronic soundscapes that was developed in other recordings. Newly noticeable are rhythmic influences from the Balinese and African cultures that are unabashedly ritualistic and celebratory in nature. But, Demby has not forgotten her roots; the last four tracks, taken together, create a majestic celestial voyage for inner travelers.


"One of the most inspiring works in all of new age music." - New Frontier


" Lotus Opening, is, for me, the single best example of music that personifies clouds. The compositional structure is perfectly descriptive of the life cycle of huge cumulus clouds we experience during the summer here in the Southwest. I find much inspiration from this music for my cloud paintings. Every time I listen to this piece, I imagine myself gliding around and within the huge cumulus clouds, blue sky and sun pierced sprays of rain. Thank for giving me wings.".-Tom Blazier





Reviews:

"The best music Constance Demby has ever written. I believe that Set Free will set a new standard. This is truly space/new age music at its best. Pick up Set Free and listen to a masterpiece." - Synthesis


"An extraordinary release... Rhythmic influences that are unabashedly ritualistic and celebratory, plus a majestic celestial voyage for inner travelers. Set Free is a first-rate album by an artist in her prime. " - New Age Retailer


"A rich, diverse and fascinating album, bubbling with vibrant life, full of tenderness and grand magnificence, joyful orchestral anthems and a general mood of celebration and high energy. - Heartsong Review


"A masterful release by an established synthesizer artist." - Platter Chatter




"One of the most inspiring works in all of new age music . Set Free is a recording of beautiful creative virtuosity....ecstatic, majestic, meditative spacemusic. " - New Frontier


"There is in this music a spirit of joy and breakthrough so deep, so full that it deserves a worldwide audience. Set Free demonstrates Demby's range, her capacity to explore another phase of the great cycle, another mood, another window on another world. - Pathways  


"The new album by Constance Demby is the most astonishing to date. There is visionary force, an internal dynamic and purity, and immense feeling in this work.. At a time when the Schulzes, Tangerine Dreams and others still swear by their drum machines, here is electronic music which surpasses our expectations. " - Crystal Infos  


"Albums like this one will make you realize that we don't quite know yet what New Age music is all about...with its overflow of sounds, it might make much of your recorded collection seem tame.." - Arizona Light  


"In some ways she's becoming more masterful... Mother of the World, with its soaring piano solos, shrouded vocals, and soaring string accompaniments, is one of the most poignant melodic moments in Demby's repertoire. The whole thing is assembled with such freshness, skill and expressive validity that it's hard to resist." - CD Review  







Listener Response:
 
"...My name is Katrina and when I was nine years old I got a cassette tape of Constance Demby, "Set Free". Today I am 13 years old, and since then, above all the music I hear, nothing compares to the sound that Constance Demby has created. I've played it for my friends, but nobody understands what is so special about it. The music to me makes me realize life. Truly and honestly I cry at times when I am alone and listen to the tape. The music is so powerful that it sends messages to me about the world and then I cry and think about how we are polluting the earth. The music has made me realize that when I grow up I will devote my time to making this world a better place. " - Katrina Popp


I'm a huge aficionado of contemorary instrumental music even though it seems there is so little of it that I feel really speaks to me. The music of SET FREE speaks to me, and in a very, very big way. Of all the 1000's of CD's I have listened to, this one ranks NUMBER ONE. Constance Demby is definitely one of the best of this genre... This CD demonstrates the sheer virtuosity Demby is capable of performing... . This is the closest I've ever heard synthesizer music sounding so classical and timeless in style. This CD is a magical, spiritual masterpiece! - Eric Grzenia


Divine Music of the Spheres,
I listened to Set Free for the first time in complete darkness after midnight on a Friday night. When the C.D. was over, I could not physically move--I was pinned to the floor and my spirit seemed to be in communion with "All That Is." -
David


"This CD was my first exposure to Constance Demby's music. Since then, it has been THE standard by which I judge and compare all new age / symphonic music. She starts off with melodic, fast paced pieces and then slowly blends them deeper, slower... more mystical and mysterious. Set Free takes you on a journey into grand sonic vistas filled with depth, passion and joy. This CD is a MUST if you are a fan of either new age or symphonic music."
-C. Gallahun "Chai"



" ...I am HIV positive, and SET FREE literally got me through all of my anxieties....I was able to laugh and cry with it, (mostly cry), meditate, sleep and even regain my appetite. While listening, I aligned my soul and mind back to sanity because I really thought I was losing it for a while. Many friends and family tried their best to comfort me, but when it came right down to it, your "Set Free" album is what carried me through. " - No. 1 fan, Thad


A Magnum Opus that defines a genre,
"I love Constance Demby's music. She is fantastic. There are things she can do with her music and sounds she can conjure up that will evoke images and emotions like none other. Be prepared to go from inner spce to outer space with this magnificent album. There are tracks on here where you can literally feel the longing... you WILL cry. It is impossible not to reflect back on your own life with this music. Rarely have I encountered such heart felt music that evokes so much feeling and imagination. It would be cliche for me to say this will change your life, and probably melodramatic, but I gurantee, it'll hit you right in the heart.... what a treasure! " -- music fan from Miami, FL


Don't miss being 'Set Free'...,
"I obtained this album back in 1989, and I still find myself playing this CD more often than any other. It inspires all of my moods even when I am sad, happy, meditating or making love". - music fan from Southern California


"...Your music stirred the very depths of my soul. I felt as though I was experiencing the whole creation of the Universe. Your "Waltz of Joy" lifted my heart to a level of bliss I have not experienced in a long time..." - M. Shipp


"...To this day, neither of us can explain it, but when that song , "Mother of the World" came on, it was like something in our heads clicked, like we recognized each other after being apart for a longtime. He kissed me and then I asked him what just happened, and he wasn't sure. Then we said our first "I love you." We are now expecting our first child, and I'm not sure she would be here if it wasn't for that song. My mother uses your music in her writing, my husband uses it to study his astrophysics. and I use your music to lull my class of preschoolers to sleep at nap time. " - S. and T. Ewing


"Lotus Opening, is, for me, the single best example of music that personifies clouds. The compositional structure is perfectly descriptive of the life cycle of huge cumulus clouds we experience during the summer here in the Southwest. I find much inspiration from this music for my cloud paintings. Every time I listen to this piece, I imagine myself gliding around and within the huge cumulus clouds, blue sky and sun pierced sprays of rain. Thank for giving me wings." -Tom Blazier
