A Broken Hallelujah

Leonard Cohen's Secret Chord

Liel Leibovitz

A Broken Hallelujah by Liel Leibovitz

Born into a Canadian religious Jewish family, for years a reclusive lyricist on the Greek island of Hydra, known for his bold political commentary, his devotion to Buddhist thought and his later despair over contemporary Zionism, Leonard Cohen hardly follows the rules of a conventional rock star.

Yet the prophetic themes of his music, often filled with pessimism and apocalyptic visions, prove redemptive to an audience that spans generations, from those who listened in the 1960’s to today. As Leonard Cohen requires, A Broken Hallelujah is a passionate and personal evocation of a man who appeals to the inner spirit of his many devoted followers.
