Text heard on Sample:
Slyshish, voyushchiy nabat,
Tochno stonet mednyi ad,
Eti zvuki, v dikoy muke, skazku uzhasov tverdyat!

Hear them, hear the brazen bells,
Hear the loud alarum bells!
In their sobbing, in their throbbing what a tale of horror dwells!

Edgar Allen Poe translated into Russian by Konstantin Balmont
