Plaque: Jacques Brel

From the state of the plaque there seems to be some dispute about whether "encore" should have that last "e" or not. "Encor" is an archaic, poetic form of "encore" ("still"), but archaic is one thing Brel is not. Our French consultant, Jean-Michel Pochet, explains that "encor" is written to provide a masculine rhyme with "la mort".
