Between Your Love and Mine - Requiem in Ireland

Last summer, using only Leonard Cohen's songs, words and poems, writer John MacKenna began work on a requiem for theatre, in memory of young friends and in honour of those who mourn them. The requiem was inspired, in particular, by Leonard's hope-filled lines:

"Behold the gates of mercy, in arbitrary space, and none of us deserving the cruelty or the grace, o solitude of longing where love has been confined, come healing of the body, come healing of the mind."

In late October 2016, just two weeks before his death, the singer approved the final draft of Between Your Love and Mine which will be premiered at VISUAL Carlow, Ireland.

Musical director for the requiem is Aisling Carter and it features the voices of Eric Butler, Katie Jacques and Shane Sullivan. The band features Aisling Carter on keyboard, Lucy Deegan on cello; Annie-Rose Deegan on violin; David Day on percussion. Lighting: Tom Kennedy.

Hi,
Congratulations to John and crew. Great interweaving of Leonard's music and words, primarily from Book of Mercy. It led to an intense and paced evening, where attention to to musical interpretation and the spoken word heightened the beauty of Leonard's work. Hope to go again on Friday.
All the best,
merton
