Review:
"The current CD presents a charming variety of music on an intimate scale...large talent and wide-ranging themes inhabit each composition. ...Listeners will certainly enjoy 'Peculiar Plants' as a showcase for Ms. Bond's appealing, innovative music." (East Hampton Press)

"The works here show [Victoria Bond] as a composer of craft and a wide expressive range; her musical language is modernistic but not particularly complicated..." (American Record Guide)
