Bad Romance (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

    Back in the days there were chivalry, honor, people knowing their social classes, and the worst a maiden can do is show an ankle. Today, we have these newfound machines destroying our path with the Lord, scum "Middle Class" now dominate society instead of noble blood, and our music today under the Jacobin Queen Victoria consist of hacks like Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Edvard Grieg, and Edward Elgar. I was born in the wrong generation

    This gives me nostalgia to being a homosexual seamstress in the 14th century carrying on a highly improper affair with the milkmaid, but it was okay since her husband, the squire, was dallying with the king because the queen didn't give good head. But alas, our love was doomed as was the state of our petticoats after we made love. For the squire was a dirty little snitch who told the queen and my love, dear Jane the milkmaid, was beheaded for her heinous attacks of adultery whilst her husband made out with the king in his private chambers. The hypocrisy was appalling, but I remembered her, and weekly placed sprigs of the daisies she so dearly loved by her grave.
