Now, I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing hallelujah
Comment From Original 2010 Posting:
No one has the timbre, emotional layering, and depth that Leonard does in singing his own song. Several moments after he finishes, it’s as though he begins to slowly re-emerge back into our world, having been fully present and involved where the song resides. Thank you so much for posting this on your site, Allan.
