The collaborative work Between Your Love and Mine was developed in the summer of 2016 by Leonard Cohen and John MacKenna. Novelist and theatre director MacKenna approached his friend of 35 years with the idea of arranging a requiem for stage, a theatre piece in memory of young people who had died.

Over the following months, using only Leonard Cohen’s words and music, the requiem took shape and was given final approval by him in October of 2016. Sadly, two weeks later Cohen died.
