I know it’s Halloween in just ten day, but nonetheless I’m going to deviate from my self-imposed diet of holiday music. Instead, today’s tune has personal meaning. “Hallelujah,” by Leonard Cohen, is sung here in my favorite version by KD Lang who has, let’s face it, a better voice than Mr Cohen. (With all due respect, even Effing Feline has a better voice than Mr Cohen.)
- I like the tune so much I made an arrangement for oboe, which was Cohen’s original instrument, and it shows. Some pieces fit certain instruments better than others, and this one is perfect for oboe.
- My latest messterpiece, a Christmas novella called Alien Contact for an Enhanced Nutcracker, goes live today! Yay!
- But most important of all, I’m finally getting the brace off my shoulder, 6.5 weeks after my rotator cuff surgery. Double yay!! Triple yay!!!
