The Ballad of Annabel Lee is by Kerry Turner, and wrttien for Baritone Voice, 2 Horns & Piano. 

Kerry Turner is one of the most recognized names in the world of brass playing. He has performed with the American Horn Quartet, the Virtuoso Horn Duo, and the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra, among many other ensembles. Turner has written works for horn in combination with virtually every genre of chamber music including commissions by the United States Air Force Heritage of America Band, the Luxembourg Philharmonic, the Japanese Horn Ensemble, and the Richmond, Virginia Chamber Music Society (with Thomas Jostlein), among others. "Annabel Lee" was Edgar Allan Poe's last complete poem, written in May, 1849 and published posthumously. This piece would be appropriate in any recital featuring baritone voice, or in a performance of duo horns. The tempi and mood vary, and the subject matter is serious.  The libretto closely follows the original poem, as commonly published with minor variations.
