Dame Judi Dench, her rendition is beautiful, yet fragile and touching. She never fails to move me. She is one of the most brilliant actresses of our time and this really shines through when she sings!

I've always loved Barbara Streisand's version. It's the best balance of great, subtle vocals, and great, subtle acting IMO, despite the fact it's out of context.

Honorable Mentions:

Ruthie Henshall - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyscZQmRc6w

And I'm waiting for a high quality version to surface on youtube, but I really like Catherine Zeta Jones' performance as well.

Whilst it's rather odd of me to say this of someone who is primarily known as a popular singer, I must agree wholeheartedly. I personally hesitate before claiming it is 'the best', but nevertheless she does a superb job.

And as for Catherine Zeta Jones, I will likely not be able to go to New York for a considerable amount of time and greatly envy those of you who can see the show now. >.>

CZJ actually did the song really well. She wasn't trying to make it sound overtly pretty or gut-wrenching. Just a realization of the situation. She and Glynis Johns are definitely my favorites.

Does anyone know of a clip anywhere of Angela Lansbury singing it? There was one on the other post, but its been deleted. And has Beradette Peters ever done it? I feel like she would be a natural.
