About Ancient Voices

Ancient Voices airs twice a week on Classically Austin 89.5 KMFA: Sundays at 10 AM and Mondays at 9 PM. It's a one-hour program showcasing music from the Middle Ages, Renaissance and early Baroque. From sonorous medieval chant and polyphony to delightful renaissance madrigals and consort music to magnificent baroque cantatas and keyboard music, you'll hear it all on Ancient Voices! The program is supported in part by Texas Early Music Project.

If you don't live in Central Texas, catch the program via our live stream at!

Ancient Voices is hosted by Sara Hessel, who first discovered her love of early music while studying at the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. She brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to her presentation of the music.

Ancient Voices was given a Critics Pick award in the Austin Chronicle's 2010 'Best of Austin' issue! Visit the Chronicle's 2010 'Best of Austin' page to see the award. Thank you, Austin Chronicle!
