"Linda Bouchard's Lung Ta came in five movements and a coda, with elements of world music about it that might be excerptable, say, for Andy Kershaw's influential BBC radio show, but also the formal satisfactions (brevity, pacing, point) of solid writing for the string quartet medium, along with those of a effects-and-new-sonorities sound piece. A strong and attractive personality was evident in it." Richard Buell, The Boston Globe

"... galloping repetitions of notes with treble flourishes and sudden changes in meter to evoke Tibetan wind horses, animals that carry prayers to heaven." Edward Rothstein, The New York Times
