    Leonard Cohen Hallelujah, did you know?


    Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" became one of the most famous songs ever written after it was covered by more than 200 different artists, including Tori Amos, Willie Nelson, Bono, and Jeff Buckley. The first known version of the song was released in October 1985 by Leonard Cohen on his debut album "Songs of Leonard Cohen" and it was covered by the Canadian singer Joni Mitchell on her album "Hejira".

    The song was written by Cohen in 1984 and inspired by the biblical story of King David and Uriah's wife Bathsheba. Leonard Cohen is known to have been influenced by the King James Version of the Bible (which he used in his writing) and took the biblical story of Uriah and Bathsheba as a basis for the song.

    Even if you haven't heard the song, you've probably heard it sung at a wedding or two. In fact, it is so well known that only 10 years after its release, Leonard Cohen withdrew permission for the song to be played on television by a popular music video show.

    The producers of the show claimed that they didn't know the song was about Bathsheba and David. In the song, Cohen sings: "Bathsheba went out to the fields, she cut off her hair and then she bowed down to the ground."

    He then goes on to list all of the things he knows about her. There's no doubt that Bathsheba is an important person in the Bible. In fact, she is the only woman mentioned by name in the entire Bible (though several other women are referred to as "Bathsheba's daughters").

    "Hallelujah" was originally in the key of C minor but has been transposed up to B minor. The lyrics to the song are about love and peace.

    Record producer Jeff Lynne (of Electric Light Orchestra) first saw the play in 2008. After seeing it he contacted Andrew Lloyd Webber and asked if he could work on a recording of "Hallelujah". Andrew Lloyd Webber stated that the movie "The Last Temptation of Christ" was a strong influence on the song, and that he was inspired by the relationship between Jesus and Judas in the film.

    With lyrics written by Leonard Cohen, the song has been covered many times and became an anthem of celebration for the end of the 1980s. Both Jeff Buckley's and John Cale's cover versions reached number one on Billboard magazine's Hot Digital Songs chart in 1998.

    The song was first performed by the original cast of "Jesus Christ Superstar" in 1971 at the Royal Albert Hall. The same year, a recording by the group Sweet Inspirations was released on the album "Superstar Medley". The song was originally written for the musical "Jesus Christ Superstar", and is sung by Jesus, Judas, and Mary Magdalene.

    This score was originally published in the key of C. Composition was first released on Thursday 21st November, 2019 and was last updated on Thursday 19th March, 2020.

    In order to transpose click the "notes" icon at the bottom of the viewer. If transposition is available, then various semitones transposition options will appear. If not, the notes icon will remain grayed. Most of our scores are traponsosable, but not all of them so we strongly advise that you check this prior to making your online purchase. You can do this by checking the bottom of the viewer where a "notes" icon is presented. If it is completely white simply click on it and the following options will appear: Original, 1 Semitione, 2 Semitnoes, 3 Semitones, -1 Semitone, -2 Semitones, -3 Semitones. This means if the composers Words and Music by LEONARD COHEN started the song in original key of the score is C, 1 Semitone means transposition into C#. If you selected -1 Semitone for score originally in C, transposition into B would be made. If your desired notes are transposable, you will be able to transpose them after purchase. Be careful to transpose first then print (or save as PDF). When this song was released on 11/21/2019 it was originally published in the key of C.
