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
Listen on Soundcloud:
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

    • Thank you! Haha, I’m aware. It’s a sort of vestigial feature of the original lyrics, which (incorrectly) are, “you and me could write a bad romance”. I’m not sure why I went with it, but I suppose it just sounded odd corrected. 😋
