Best version of "Amazing Grace"?

As I burn the midnight oil I'm spinning an eclectic bunch of old CDs and I just heard Judy Collins sing Amazing Grace. Offhand, I cannot think of a better version...but maybe I'm missing the boat. Any nominations for the best Grace of all?

P.S. I just now read the thread started by lostman about Songs That Bring Tears, where he mentioned the bagpipe version...that'd have to be in the top 2 or 3.




Conan, what is best in life?
To crush the Aggies. To see them driven before you. To hear the lamentations of their barnyard animals.

I'm not sure if you like country music, but for me its the Leann Rimes version. Her voice is absolutely amazing. I agree the bagpipe version if great, but its the version you always hear.

Maybe not the best version, but it's the best I've heard by a two year old.

Btw, I love the Judy Collins version. The voice of an angel.

If you've never heard Aaron Neville close out a Neville Brothers show with his a capella version of "Amazing Grace", then you've mised the best version ever.

The Longhorn Band at A&M was great because of the emotion but so was the bagpipe player walking away into the fog at Payne Stewart's funeral.

Think you mean Phantom Regiment instead of Blue Devils, but yeah that's the first thing I thought of

I use "Amazing Grace" in my HS History class while teaching about slavery. Amazing story of John Newton for those who are not aware. Anyway, I use the Charlottte Church version for my class. Very, very good.
