A short powerfuly written note received from the voice behind Canada's Parliament moved me to stop what I was doing and post his videos from the Open Mic session.

I love your comment. :D I don't mind being in Albert's shadow, for what a magnificent shadow his incredible photographic talent casts.

Be sure to see my last Open Mic video with HENNING's set in another thread.
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=22779

I will post it here again later for completeness.

Henning melds his music with Leonard Cohen's words to stunning effect

While the Krakow Event brimmed with excellent, interesting presentations, none was more captivating, genuinely moving, and – at least to me – delightfully surprising than our very own forum Mod, Henning’s performance at the Open Mic session.

To those of us who know Henning only from his forum posts, he comes across as – well, let’s call it feisty and edgy. In person, however, he is – and those of you who haven’t met him will have to trust me on this - charming, soft spoken, and elegant.

At Open Mic, Henning sang lyrics written by Leonard Cohen set to music Henning himself composed. The effect was, without exaggeration, enthralling.

In an email correspondence, Henning elaborated on his approach:
The song [played at Open Mic] is called Priests. It appeared on the first LC songbook that I bought, called Songs from Leonard Cohen.

Way back then I tried to play it according to the tablature in the songbook, but never really got it. So after I started to create my own melodies to Leonard's poems in 2000, early this year I created my own take on Priests and this is the result.
Happily, I captured Henning's turn at the Krakow Open Mic on video. The lighting on the theatre stage distorts the view somewhat, but the sound is pretty good.

As can be seen on this video, the words of Leonard Cohen meld with Henning's exquisite music giving the audience a gift which shines with his unabashed love of Leonard Cohen’s work.

* Priests *
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DWJ-PrZuuo
Music by Henning Franz
Words by Leonard Cohen
Leonard's lyrics are:

And who will write love songs for you
when I am lord at last
and your body is some little highway shrine
that all my priests have passed

My priests they will put flowers there
they will stand before the glass
and they wear away your little window love
they will trample on the grass

And who will aim the arrow
that men will follow thru your grace
when I am lord of memory
and all your armour has turned to lace

And all of you have seen the dance
that God has kept from me
but he has seen me watching you
when all your minds where free

There are 4 songs from my 2003 album "Songs from Energy of slaves" at

I came so far for beauty, indeed.

Arlene,

We came so far for beauty indeed.

Thank you for the videos from the open mic sessions, such great memories.

Your piece on Henning is stunning.

In song.

Thanks Arlene, that's very nice.

In above mentioned songbook there is an article from William Kloman describing Leonard Cohen. Leonard has added a comment to this article and may I now once again use Leonard's words for my own purpose.
....... charming, soft spoken, and elegant.

Dear Arlene,
As always your videos are so good, I will take Hennings comments with a grain of salt as he has always been famous in our family (especially from our daughter's perspective) for his wonderful creations. Ken & I, however, are trying to hold him accountable for the reason why he hasn't played our favorite piece, "A Kite is a Victim" during the last several gatherings. He has had ample time to prepare himself. His vague protestations, not withstanding, about not remembering the piece, would certainly not hold up in the court of Leonard Cohen where Leonard remembers the songs each day without a monitor. I can't help but think that it is just laziness on his part. I hope you at least have his "Tea & Oranges" cd to get you through until he can sing in person, again for us.

Joe

Well, Joe, I hope at the next gathering, you will sing your "Woody Guthrie" again for us. It was outstanding!

Tony you are right but I am happy to do the kite at the open mic in Madison as a special gift for Joe from Wisconsin. In the cover versions thread, Paul from Zagreb detects a slight Irishness in my voice as an effect of drinking a lot with Joe from Galway and hanging around a lot with the fantastic Irish people in our group. So this must be a proof that true love indeed leaves some traces.

Hey, doesn't anybody have Ann Vriend's+lovely helpers famous "You must not love" performance? I can really relate to the title of this song... and the way it was played in Krakow, it was so much fun!
