A while ago, I gave the poet Ira Lightman a set of Jacques Brel CDs.

It’s clear Lightman’s rather fond of Brel; he’s not only translated some of Brel’s classic works, but he’s set and performed them too.

I don’t normally link to u–toob, but this is a worthy exception:

It’s worth checking his channel out too.
