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

"OMG it's teh sirens!"
XD Joking, but that was really what I thought when I heard your voice!
Great arrangement in the Salon Quintet!
And to Chuck, watch out for sirens! You're in great danger! ;D

MaestroRage responds:

*Giggle* Heeheehee, funny you would mention sirens. We wanted to make a song about one quite some time ago. We never got the chance to do it though. ^ ^ Heehee, thank you so much though! And yes. >=3 Little Ragey doesn't know just how much danger he's in. Eeheeheehee... XD Anyway, thanks for listening!
With love,
LadyArsenic <3


this my first listening to one of your works and i must say it is B E A utiful
I only have one request,
do you mind if i download this and a male chord (me) in the back ground, i'm a bass singer??

MaestroRage responds:

Awww, thank you so much. I would love to hear a male part in this piece (I'm always trying to get Ragey to sing with me, but he never will). Just make sure not to drown me out, mmkay? Thank you for listening!
With love,
LadyArsenic <3


To be honest, I've never liked music with someone singing, but when I've heard Lady Arsenic, I just... it was something like "Woooooooow....". I was amazed :D
And I'm stil! :D Yay for Lady Arsenic!
Oh, and MaestroRage too ;)

MaestroRage responds:

^_^ Aww, I'm glad I can make you like vocals! It's what I'm here for, really! Don't forget that I'm a composer too. Thank you for your kind words, and thank you for listening!
With love,
LadyArsenic <3

Simply Wonderful!

Beautifuly done. It almost had a haunting sound, kind of like sirens singing. Love to hear more in the future.

MaestroRage responds:

^ ^ Thank you very much. I love making my songs with a kind of eerie essence to them. Funny you would mention a siren... Heh, Ragey and I were going to do a piece together about one. I was going to be the siren. ^_^ Don't worry though. You will hear more. It's a promise! Thanks for listening!
With love,
LadyArsenic <3

Will you stop calling me Ragey >:(!?
- Selcuk

very beautiful...

it reminds me of a rennisaunce (sp?) fair
in not really into this type of music
but i do really enjoy it

i'm not the one to prejudge a song based on genre
just its so high pitch
but the chords and harmonizing was simply capivating
wonderful =D

i'll get you some parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme next time im out lol

MaestroRage responds:

It is a Renaissance piece! Wonderful, I captured its essence!
Anyway, I'm glad you can step out of your own little boundaries there to taste something new, Nashton. ^_^ That alone is a breath of fresh air for me. Anyway, yes, I know it's high-pitched. This is my signature. It's what makes me Lady Arsenic and no one else. I loved making the chords though, and a lot of it was actually improvising. *Giggle* Oh with these herbs I shall make a new song altogether and call it the Nashton Song. =3 Don't know how good herbs will be with music, but we'll see how it goes! Thanks for listening!
With love,
LadyArsenic <3
