" I love the work you do--the music, which expresses the heart of this tradition."
Elaine Pagels, Princeton University, Author of The Gnostic Gospels
"A hermeneutically exciting interpretation of Thunder,"
Karen L. King,Winn Professor Ecclesiastical History, Harvard University
"Julia Haines combines creative composition with keen spiritual sensitivity for our day. Her musical compositions flow from a deep place near the heart of the universe through her own heart and out into the world.....Julia Haines’ composition "Thunder Perfect Mind" ... loyal to its ancient world... to the contemporary intersection with the deepest of our traditions. Julia Haines’ performance is technically superb and personally vibrant.”
Hal Taussig, Union Theological Seminary
"We are carried over the edges by the music of her voice, her exquisite use of the Celtic harp, and her accompanying musicians, back to the voice of the Thunder: Perfect Mind and returned through the many centuries to our own time where it is totally relevant. While the music itself is outstanding, it is made 'particularly moving by the fact that the text provides us with the actual words of a woman (or women) two thousand years ago. Julia has merged with the spirit of that woman, and speaks not only with that voice, but has brought it into our century introducing us to our foresisters, and their own Goddess spirituality. In finding the text from the past, she has recalled, remembered, and with genius created an identification, a work of much beauty, and a true inspiration."
