Hallelujah -

After my last post, it feels a bit strange to be posting this - but I have been meaning to do it for a couple of days. Apparently, this song is now No 1 and 2 in the UK charts - the first from a reality show contestant, whose name eludes me, and the second from Jeff Buckley. Leonard Cohen's original version is also somewhere in the top 40. This is, to say the least, unusual and a real tribute to an artist whose vision and work has inspired me for decades. I cannot accept the myth that has so inspired him, but can only wonder at what it has inspired. So, here it is - the original singer but somewhat older - from the Glastonbury festival 2008 - ( the first for many years I am sorry i missed - for this very reason) Hallelujah!:
