Video: Leonard Cohen & Jennifer Warnes Sing Silent Night – 1979

Leonard Cohen and Jennifer Warnes Sing Silent Night: Brighton – 1979

This Leonard Cohen-Jennifer Warnes duet of Silent Night with Raffi Hakopian on violin was performed and recorded (audio only) at the December 15, 1979 Brighton, England concert. I’ve constructed a video montage of photos of Cohen and Warnes, drawings by Leonard Cohen, and a clip of a very young Leonard and his sister Esther skating to complement the music.

I am republishing selected posts from my former Leonard Cohen site, Cohencentric, here on (these posts can be found at Leonard Cohen). This entry was originally posted Nov 30, 2011 at
