Video: Exquisite, Subtle Recording Of Leonard Cohen Performing Hallelujah – Paris 2013


I continue to be impressed by the 2013 Leonard Cohen Bercy, Paris concert videos uploaded from the memory card of Lili072012, whose work was featured earlier in Remarkable Videos Of Leonard Cohen’s Intimate Performances Of Suzanne & Darkness. Today’s offering is a well-crafted video of Cohen’s personal, poignant rendering of Hallelujah that is far more moving than the overblown, pseudo-operatic productions typical of the Hallelujah covers that regularly appear on X Factor/Idol/Voice sort of shows. The key to the success of this recording is that the video never calls attention to itself; instead it enables the viewer to focus on the musicians and the music.
