I’ve posted on Edgar Allan Poe’s poem Annabel Lee previously at Writely Applied so you know it has a history in our family. I only wish that my mom who brought me up on classic poetry and literature had internet access because it is as much fun as hours in a library filled to the ceilings with books. Browsing YouTube is just as fun and here are some renditions of the Poe classic poem, Annabel Lee. Don’t forget to read along at The Literature Network link below.
I love this YouTube by user l2suis. It ends a bit abruptly at the end but the pictures are wonderful and the reader’s voice eloquent.
I couldn’t leave it be though and searched a few others. I found these two posted by YouTube user ghesseg. Same tune really but one is the classic version and the second is a rock version.
Classic Version performed by the Jerusalem Academy of Music Chamber Choir conducted by Stanley Sperber live at Mishkenot Sha’ananim in 2007.
And just because the visuals were nice…
