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

i just got my internet back after hurricane ike O_O i was in it! anyways the song was great i liked the original scarborough fair but wiht this remix and LadyArsenic singing it was fantastic! Definitely has a celtic feel to it and i'd love to hear more!
10/10 5/5

MaestroRage responds:

Congrats for your internet! Thank you very much for your kind words, but there really isn't a real "original" Scarborough Fair. It's a traditional English Renaissance piece. I know that Simon and Garfunkel made it popular with their version, but it definitely is not the original song. =3 Thank you again, and thanks for listening!
With love,
LadyArsenic <3

I give it &quot;7 singing female demons&quot; of 10

I liked it, and was more unique with the use of rain and the singing.
I dunno what the other wank is talking about, but it does fit well to give it more of a celtic like sound.
I think the singing was abit high pitch and there was no real transition that gave it one long smooth like movement.
It goes on my "check it out" listing.

MaestroRage responds:

Thank you very much, Shadowfox, for your kind words! I quite like the Celtic sound as well. As for the high pitched singing... well... I'm Lady Arsenic. o_o; I'm notorious for going really high. It's my signature thing. Lady Arsenic not going high The transition problem is my equipment's fault. =/ Partly the secret of how I did this song without making it sound like my microphone's going through a cheese grater. It'll get better, I promise. Anyway, thanks for listening!
With love,
LadyArsenic <3

Standing Ovation

Haha, Sorry I haven't communicated much lately, and after hearing some of you and LadyArsenics new stuff I am very remorseful.

This is grade A, I mean I have been listening to alot of professional classical pieces in the little spare time I've had in preperation for the college transition next year, and this ranks up there with them. It sounds so professional, and is still so peaceful and somehow unpredictly catching. Er I guess thats how I'd describe it, it's like I want to sing along, but I can't because its too complex.

I'm going to go look at some more of your new submissions now. I wonder if you remember me? I can't tell how long it's been anymore..I lost track of time.

Bobs (yes, with an "s" ;P)

MaestroRage responds:

Well hello there! I don't know you at all, but Ragey says he remembers you quite well and is fond of you. Anyway, thank you so much for what you have to say! I'm so glad you think my work sounds professional! That really is a breath of fresh air compared to what I've had to work there in the beginning. ='3 Your beloved little Lady is growing up! <3 Anyway, thanks again for your work, and thanks for listening!
With love,
LadyArsenic <3

What a great adpation!

A classic song which I love, and what a great Celtic sounding vibe this has. I feel blessed to hear this adaption, surely the best adaption I've heard?

My god you did well, 5/5 10/10.

MaestroRage responds:

^ ^ Aww, thank you so much! I've always been fascinated with Celtic singing, so I wanted to combine my newly-learned skill and a Renaissance song to make it SUPER pretty. =3
Thank you kindly for your flattering words, and thank you for listening!
With love,
LadyArsenic <3

hmmm there's not that much I can say about this I didn't really like it the singing was great not my style maybe a little more than rain in the back round maybe some acoustic guitar that would make it sound good and chimes the singing made it good besides that boring

MaestroRage responds:

Well, sorry to have disappointed you then. If I had added more rain, then it would just be the sound of rain. The voices are already pretty drowned out as it is. As for instruments... Well, I refused to put any instruments in it. This is a choral arrangement. I wanted it to showcase one thing and one thing only, and that's the flexibility and tone of my voice. Thank you for listening though.
With love,
