Join the Consulate General of Canada in New York and 92YTribeca as we launch the newest book from distinguished music critic Alan Light, celebrate Canadian legend Leonard Cohen, pay tribute to the late American singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley and hail one of the most-performed rock songs in history—Cohen's canonical "Hallelujah."
The Holy or the Broken: Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley, and the unlikely Ascent of "Hallelujah", Light's revelatory new book, shines the spotlight on Cohen's evocative, ambiguous "hymn" and its rise from label reject to luminous contemporary standard, highlighting the role that Buckley's haunting 1994 cover played in the song's ascent.
In addition to launching The Holy or the Broken with a reading, interview and audience Q&A with Light, three completely unique live presentations of "Hallelujah" will be performed by Michael Leonhart (Steely Dan, Michael Leonhart & The Avramina 7, Donald Fagen), Peter Kiesewalter (East Village Opera Company, Brooklyn Rundfunk Orkestrata), Greg Naughton (The Sweet Remains) and the remarkable "Hallelujah" House Band. Book sale and signing to follow.
Come celebrate Alan Light's "biography of a song" and hear that oft-interpreted song again as if for the first time.
