    On yesterday morning’s The Sunday Magazine on CBC Radio One,
    there was an 11 minute interview with author Harry Freedman
    who discussed religious references in Leonard Cohen’s music.

    Here is a link to that interview:


    That page includes a button to play the interview, and also
    a text article including some links to relevant songs. Here is
    the opening paragraph:

    "Leonard Cohen's beautiful verses from songs such as Hallelujah
    and You Want It Darker are deeply religious, and according to
    author Harry Freedman, they're just two of many where Cohen
    borrowed from ancient texts."
