This Week on Ancient Voices
There’s something extra special about hearing music performed in the space for which it was composed, and on this week’s Ancient Voices, we’ll do just that! Join Sara Hessel for highlights from last week’s Buxtehude Festival in Lübeck, Germany, performed by Capella St. Marien and soloists.
Ancient Voices airs Sundays at 10 AM and Mondays at 9 PM.
