Leonard Cohen

Hallelujah

I’m writing this week's “Song of The Week” blurb from my parent’s home in Ottawa on Remembrance Day. A lot to think about with the passing yesterday of perhaps our country’s most renowned poet singer songwriter Leonard Cohen and remembering those brave souls who gave their lives for our freedom. Leonard Cohen’s uninhibited freedom of expression was the gift he shared with the world so in his honour I think it would only be right to choose his most famous song “Hallelujah”. There are a multitude of musical and written interpretations of this brilliant composition and that’s what makes it such a beautiful piece of work. When something can connect so many people yet mean something different to each and every individual it holds a special power.
