By request we re-post this Cloverton version of Hallelujah — a Christmas Hallelujah. This song is very well known but this moving version burst on the scene last year to wide acclaim:
Leonard Cohen’s 1984 tune has been covered by the likes of Willie Nelson, Rufus Wainwright and Jeff Buckley. Buckley’s 1994 version may be the best-known version, having been used in a variety of TV and movies. It was released as a single in 2007.
The boys of Cloverton take Cohen’s iconic melody and infuse it with lyrics chronicling the birth of Jesus Christ. Regardless of your religious orientation, this song hits an emotional chord as vocalist Lance Stafford gives it his all.
