I heard a song on Los Angeles independent radio the other day that included lyrics from "Feste's Song"
from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night

It was sung by an man with an Britishy accent that seemed more like Northern England or Scotland or Wales or maybe Ireland.
It was NOT Elvis Costello
It seems as though the tune and the arrangement of the lyrics were not the same as other (traditional?) arrangement of the song. There may have been additional lyrics.
The vibe was sort of folky indie rock melancholy dark.
Some sample lyrics:
"With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,
For the rain it raineth every day."
'A great while ago the world begun"
