Watch: Leonard Cohen Recites “In Flanders Fields”

Laura Grande | November 11th, 2016

In honour of Remembrance Day and the recent passing of Canadian legend Leonard Cohen, we revisit Legion Magazine‘s touching video.

It’s fitting that, on this day of remembrance, we honour those who fought in the war with this touching tribute by Canadian poet and musician Leonard Cohen, who passed away on November 10 at the age of 82.

Just last year, Legion Magazine and Cohen joined forces and released a video to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the poem “In Flanders Fields” by Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae.

In this beautiful tribute to McCrae, Cohen recited the stirring poem for this exclusive Legion Magazine video. His voice is accompanied by haunting imagery from the First World War.
