Written and performed by Leonard Cohen, arr. Christopher Bond
The songs of Leonard Cohen are difficult to categorize. His songs are sometimes more like poems to music. ‘Hallelujah’ is probably the most widely known Cohen composition and has been covered many times, most notably by Jeff Buckley. Hallelujah is often considered the most famous secular hymn, finding further popularity through its use in 2001 motion picture, Shrek, alongside its use in countless other film and television productions. This is a beautiful addition to the brass band repertoire and is suitable for bands of fourth section standard and higher.
