Great covers of 'If It Be Your Will' & 'Joan Of Arc'

Post by Makera » Mon Sep 04, 2006 12:13 pm

Hi all :D

I don't know if it has been mentioned here before (I couldn't find any reference) but I found a wonderful cover of Leonard's 'If It Be Your Will' a while ago at leonardcohensite.com
Sung in French by Graheme Allwright, who really does it justice: Si C'est ta Volonte

It needs RealPlayer to listen - if you don't have it already it's a free download.
The 'basic player' on the right > here

Also, Allison Crowe does an excellent version of Joan Of Arc (mp3).

Thanks, Makera! :D

I've not heard Graeme Allwright, before, but his French version sounds very true to the spirit of the original and its creator. Merci beaucoup for the introduction.

and, thanks, too, for causing me to revisit Allison Crowe's recording of "Joan of Arc"; Allison's versions of "Hallelujah" have found their audience, but, this song has its own, simple, charm - first remarked upon, I believe, by the inimitable Lizzytysh ( :

Happy, healthy, New Year to all!!

peace, Ad
