When he was looking for the sound of the synagogue of his youth, Cohen turned to that same synagogue:  Montreal’s Congregation Shaar Hashomayim, and its Cantor Gideon Zelermyer and the all-male choir.
They can be heard on two of the tracks, ”You Want It Darker,” and ”It Seemed the Better Way.”
Shaar Hashomayim was where the 13-year-old Leonard had his Bar Mitzvah.
The album, produced by Leonard’s son Adam, comes out October 21.
Leonard Cohen can be heard Saturdays and Sundays at 4:30 as part of ‘The Immortals’ on Zoomer Radio AM 740, also 96.7 FM downtown.
