Listen to this chilling and wonderful rendition of ‘Hallelujah’ performed by three men of Celtic Thunder.
“Now I’ve heard there was a secret chord that David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you? It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth
The minor falls, the major lifts, the baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah”
