So long, farewell, Leonard

Sir - Some wonderfully talented individuals have graced us with their presence on this earth.
Some have even managed to touch our soul. Leonard Cohen, in particular, could reach your inner sanctum with the words to his songs and poems.
His work explored religion, politics, isolation, sexuality and personal relationships. That deep bass voice, with a quiver to it, belting out Hallelujah in all its glory. From its opening string swells to its steel guitar flourishes and choir crescendo. Magical. My favourite Cohen song was Dance Me To The End Of Love.
