Jolene (Bardcore | Medieval Style)

Jolene, By Dolly Parton (Bardcore/Medieval Style)
Good morrow! I have descended from my cloister once more with another offering for the ravenous rabble.
Silliness aside, I want to thank you all again for helping to make such a wholesome part of the internet. I live for your hilarious comments and witty imaginings, and only wish I had more time to devote to this. I'm back to work, so I can't aspire to weekly videos, but I do endeavour to continue making these.
The art is a composite/partial paint over of three different sources, including: MS Bodley 264, and Lausanne, Bibliothèque Cantonale et Universitaire U 964 - Biblia Porta fol. 178r, and one other that I've had no luck tracking down.
Lyrics:
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I beg of thee, pray take not my lord
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I fear, from thee, ‘twould take naught but a word
Thy beauty is beyond compare
With flaming locks of auburn hair
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green
Thy smile is like a breath of Spring
Thy voice is soft like Summer rain
And I cannot compete with thee
Jolene
He talketh of thee in his sleep
And alas, I cannot keep
From weeping when I hear thy name
Jolene
Although it is so plain to see
How little he doth mean to thee
My love for him is boundless as the sea
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I beg of thee, oh please take not my lord
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I fear, from you, ‘twould take naught but a word
Thou couldst have thy choice of men
But I could never love again
He is the only one for me
Jolene
I would risk both life and limb
To spend my only days with him
My happiness is at thy whim,
Jolene
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I beg of thee, pray take not my lord
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I fear, from thee, ‘twould take naught but a word

  • I've never heard the original, and I'm afraid I shouldn't look for it now. This is so mesmerizingly wonderful, so perfectly matching the tone you're trying for. Effortlessly this fits so amazingly as a song that truly comes from this era, or at least that's how it feels. Oh I hope so greatly that you create more masterpieces like this and your other remakes, just wonderful.

Clearly the BLM and MAGA protests among the plague are our version of serf revolts during the plague and destabalized european medieval economies.....

    • What are you aiming to communicate here exactly? (I’m not sure what you mean by “voice emission” or “voice setting”) Obviously everything about this is anachronistic...that’s built into the genre of bardcore, which is a tongue-in-cheek pastiche of multiple influences.
