Well, not ancient per se, but any music that invokes the imagination into entering an ancient nostalgia.

Does anyone have any good examples of this?

Do a google search for these. If you use DC++, tell me and I'll rip a couple of these for you. So: anything by Hesperion XXI and Jordi Savall (a performing ensemble and its conductor), Ton Koopman's Bach organ works, Gesualdo: Motets and Responsories, Palestrina, Lassus and De Victoria. I'm not sure if you meant modern bands with an 'ancient' theme, but there's nothing better than the original thing.

Machaut: Kyrie from the Messe de Notre Damme.

I second Palestrina, Victoria, and add Perotin.

Perhaps some Japanese Shakuhachi flute music too.

Though I'm guessing you're after something other.

The latest Lord Wind samples sound ancient. Parts of Nile songs have a nostalgic ancient ambience.

Out of curiosity I picked up the latest Equimanthorn album, it is quite 'ancient' sounding. Only listened to it once, doesn't sound as breath-taking/ magical as the last two from Burzum (they sound ancient...)

Equimanthorn is an ambient project of Proscriptor and Equitant.

Daudi Baldrs sounds very old, archaic. Messaien's Organ work is similiar.

The intro to Thousand Swords


I'd say that album in its entirety, but yeah. As far as metal's concerned, Xibalba are the band which first comes to mind after TS, but most metal I listen to has to have *something* ancient about it. I'll let those with more informed perspectives speak regarding other genres.
