The final words we say at the end of reading Lamentations are "תודה וקול זמרה--from the depths of our sadness comes gratitude and song." Who better to express these emotions in words and in music than Leonard Cohen?
Leonard reached out to me in late November seeking the sound of the cantor and synagogue choir of his youth for his new album. My response: "Hallelujah!" and "I'm Your Man!" The results of his amazing invitation and our collaboration have finally become a reality!
"You Want it Darker" is the title track of Leonard Cohen's new album, lovingly and skillfully produced by his son, Adam Cohen, and scheduled for release next month by Sony Music Entertainment. Two of the tracks feature a collaboration between the favourite son of Congregation Shaar Hashomayim, its Cantor, and the Shaar Synagogue Choir conducted by Roï Azoulay.
