This song was an expirement, I did a while ago.  The lyrics are directly from an Edgar Allen Poe poem,  of the same title.  I wanted to infuse the music with the darkness of Poe's life (opium addict, alcoholic, troubled man.  Also a mysterious, and out of worldly atmosphere..  The quasi sitar, adds to the flavor. 

Sorry no score for this one

My mom used to read us Poe by candlelight when the power went out, so I have fond memories of Annibelle Lee.  This has a really nice feel to it.  I'm trying to figure out what it reminds me of, and it's right on the tip of my tongue, but I can't quite place it.  The other possibility is that you've just nailed the style so well that it feels like it should be familiar!  Very nice work!

I love it! Nice atmosphere and vocals. I like Poe very much, I find his work very inspiring.

Perhaps you would like to take a listen to a Spanish version. There was an essential group in the 90's here called "Radio Futura", they wrote the music and used a translation of the poem:
