This Leonard Cohen song has been covered by a number of recording artists and even made an appearance in Shrek. Known around the globe, it has become a standard inspirational song, leading Joel Raney to set it for 3-5 octave handbells and optional Handchimes and Synth. Ringers will enjoy the serenity and beauty of the steady 8th-note patterns that accompany the familiar melody. Its status as a "secular hymn" makes it a cross-over piece for both concert and worship settings. The optional synth part enhances the overall haunting atmosphere.
