Well, Guilgud's evening of sonnets was great, and his recording of the 
performance is still one of the best.

You will find a chapter on this in the book Shakespeare's Sonnets (not 
an edition, as is sometimes assumed), by Paul Edmondson and Stanley 
Wells, in the Oxford Shakespeare Topics series.

Will Sutton's performance of the whole sequence in the Rose a year or so 
ago will stay with me forever.

[Editor's Note: William is a long-time member of SHAKSPER. I saw his 
performance of the sonnets at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (about six 
years ago, I believe) when he was just beginning to tour with this 
program. My review of that performance can be found in the archives. 
Information about the show, including video and audio clips, as well as 
information about how to book can be found at Will's website: 
http://www.iloveshakespeare.com/. Stacy Keach, another long-time member 
of SHAKSPER, has a terrific recording of the sonnets that I highly 
recommend. (Among other achievements, Keach was the most memorable and 
enjoyable Richard III I have ever had the privilege of seeing; I do not 
usually use superlatives, but he would be my choice for my "best" 
Richard III.) -Hardy]

Simon Callow has performed all of the sonnets together in a performance 
at the National Theatre of Great Britain.
