Mel Washington - "A Chorus of Hallelujahs"
November 17th, 2013
This lovely mash up of Leonord Cohen's "Hallelujah" and the "Hallelujah Chorus" from Handel's Messiah makes for a breathtakingly beautiful song and a unique but fitting addition to Mel Washington's Christmas EP Celebration. Known for his bluesy soulfulness, Washington has created a wonderful holiday album with the help of Sarra Sedghi that blends finely rendered classics with uniquely altered versions of other well known songs including this one.
It might be too late for this year, but pick it up a copy to enjoy it for next Christmas. It quite easily could become a new holiday tradition.
