Bad Romance (Bardcore | Medieval Style Cover)

Bad Romance, by Lady Gaga, but medieval/fantasy inspired.
Ye have all been exceedingly lovely, a thousand thanks for the support and kind words! I am still new to this, but wanted to actually create my own instrumental this time, so on this track you'll hear a Celtic harp and several wooden recorders I played.
Also, I received some wonderful suggestions for the name of this strange genre. Obviously there is plenty of wonderful authentic medieval music out there, but there also seems to be a ravenous demand for "old timey" covers of modern songs. So far the contenders are: Tavernwave and Bardcore. I love both, and I'd also love to hear your suggestions in the comments.
The image is a combination of two pages from the Romance of Alexander in French verse, with illuminations by the Flemish illuminator Jehan de Grise & his workshop, 1338-44

PS: (For those of you scholarly folk asking, yes "thee and me" is technically incorrect, which is a nod to the original lyrics by the Lady Gaga)
I want thine ugly, I want thy disease
Take aught from thee shall I if it can be free
I want thy love
Love, love, love, I want thy love
I want thy heartache, the touch of thy hand
For weal or woe, I want each kiss in the sand
I want thy love
Love, love, love, I want thy love
I want thy love, and all thy lover’s revenge
Thee and me could write a bad romance
I want thy horror, I want thy design
Thou art a criminal whilst thou art mine
I want thy love
Love, love, love, I want thy love
I want thy Nero, thy Bedlam lament,
If this is sin then I shall never repent,
I want thy love
Love, love, love, I want thy love
I want thy love, and all thy lover’s revenge
Thee and me could write a bad romance

    My dearest Hildegard von Blingin, I hope this letter finds thee in good health. The Lord God has giveth to me, the day twelve, February, on the year of our Lord 2021, the splendid opportunity to listen to thee and thy troubadours. I hath been giveth the greatest opportunity to listen to thy godly (although far nowhere near the glory of the Lord God) lute work. I do recommend thee another splendid lute piece that is beautiful as well. The King Henry VIII hath made a new song that finds its nam "Greensleeves." Although it is about the wretched protestant Anne Boleyn, may God forgive me for my curse of her name. Your dearest, ToTheMoon.

    I have been listening to these songs for the past hour and came up with this story for the following songs on this channel (as of when this comment was written). Bad romance, Somebody that I used to know, Jolene, and Summertime Sadness. Part one: Bad Romance There was once a young common girl who lived in a small village near the castle. She was nothing special, not any different from the other village girls her age, but on one of the rare days that the Royal king and his son, the prince, came to that village, the royal son and the young common girl’s eyes met. It was unmistakable that the two loved each other from the first stare. When no one was watching or paying much attention, the royal son came to the to the common girl and whispered quickly and quietly to her: “Meet me tonight at the lake at moon high.” The young common girl could not believe her ears. Did he really just say that? Before she could get a conformation, the royal son and the king left. Moon high came. And, despite the young common girl believing she imagined the whole interaction with the prince, she went to the lake. But there he was looking at her with a loving and longing look. The common girl? She was astounded. The two talked for hours, about their lives, their interest, and their unbreakable love for each other. But there was something about this love that could not be ignored: the son was a royal and the girl was a commoner. It was a sin! It was bad! But to them in that moment, and the many nights to come, none of that mattered to them. It was a summer the common girl would never forget. She wanted so desperately for it to last forever. But one night came when the prince didn’t show. She came back the next night and the next, but he never came back. Part two: Out now in the comment section of Somebody that I used to know (medieval version)
