Charming, huh? There have been three recordings of this; the one I uploaded is the earliest, from Mandy Patinkin's Dress Casual. He's joined by Bernadette Peters as Ella. There are four songs, all beautiful, although only "I Remember" has any fame at all, and that's as a cabaret song.

They really need to be listened to as a whole, because the songs blend into each other. Don't worry, though; they're all fantastic.
