Click to hear Wisdom (in MP3, playing time 3:15),
a poem by Leonard Cohen (from The Energy of Slaves)
composed and performed by Henning Franz

Henning's remark: This is a non-commercial project.
Listening to the songs, you have to accept scratches,
the noise that a door makes, inadequate stressing,
curious pronouncation, forgotten words, senseless
change of the original text... If you still want to
try your luck and would like to order a copy of the
album, please email Henning at
