Lady Arsenic's first solo piece on this account! Huzzah!

This is an old Renaissance folk song that has been redone and thrown about for centuries. Well, now you get to hear how it is to be sung in Lady Arsenic's point of view. And in her point of view, there needs to be 5 Lady Arsenics singing at the same time (she calls it the Salon Quintet). This project took almost 4 hours to make. No lie, no kidding. Now, how did I manage to make my great studio microphone to work without glitching? Well, that's a big secret, and she probably won't do it again unless she needs to! Anyway, enjoy!



Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Parsely, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
He once was a true love of mine.

Tell him to make me a cambric shirt
Parsely, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
Without no seams or needlework
And then he'll be a true love of mine

Tell him to wash it in yonder dry well
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
Where ne'er a drop of water e'er fell
Then he'll be a true love of mine

Tell him to find me an acre of land
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
Between salt water and the sea strands
Then he'll be a true love of mine

Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
He once was a true love of mine

Amazingly beautiful. Your voice is way better than I remember, or is it the quality? Doesn't matter, it's beautiful no matter what.
I love the melody, it defenitely resembles to the renaissance. I dare to say, this is professional quality work. It must have been hard to clone yourself 4 times only to make this song possible, but it was defenitely worth it.
Beautiful ending too, songs nowadays doesn't have good endings (mine's either). They either are like any other or a fade out (God, I hate when they fade out). This song just inspired me, thank you.

I really couldn't think of anything to improve this piece, I love it the way it is.
You really impressed me, keep that up.

-^ ^- Thank you for your compliments. I do have a better-quality microphone though, and I love it dearly!
Yeah, Scarborough Fair has one of my favorite melodies. It's so simple, but at the same time it's so original... It's like the beautiful overlooked melody. I tried to make it as good as it possibly could be. Cloning myself was NOT... NOT NOT NOT easy. You're certainly right about that. But thanks! I wanted to give it a big dramatic ending, and that one seemed to be the only proper way to do it. ^_^ Thanks for listening, dearie!
With love,
LadyArsenic <3

Pretty good.

Nice. The rain in the background wasn't the best effect, but very good.

MaestroRage responds:

Thank you! There is a bit of significance behind the rain and thunder though. Sorry if it didn't please you. ^ ^ Thanks for listening though!
With love,
LadyArsenic <3


I'm not into this Renaissance stuff, but the vocals were really good.

MaestroRage responds:

Well, that's good, I suppose. Thanks for listening.
With love,
LadyArsenic <3
