Bernard Holland, New York Times "[Her pieces] have an underlying sense of magic and mystery. Unlike some of her more intellectual contemporaries, Leach is not merely messing around with the properties of sound; she's exploring (and connecting with) the aesthetic and even spiritual power of sound."
Bill Tilland, Option
. . serene and ethereal-sounding music that seems to float . . . the overall
sound is reminiscent of Ligeti works like "Lux Aeterna" and the music
of Arvo Paert, with echoes of Renaissance polychoral composers like Tallis
Kyle Gann, Village Voice "Leach has created a sonic world of tonal beauty, a visionary quest for inner peace."
Fabrizio Gilardino, Vice Versa
