Lou Rogai, long known for his powerful work with the group Lewis & Clarke, is preparing the release of Cathedral, described as "an experimental elegy ... in three movements." The piece's second movement, 'Acceptance,' is central to the composition's central ideas about growth, reflection and letting go.

Rogai describes 'Acceptance' as a "medieval and Gregorian dirge," a meditative embrace of taking life as it comes. He uses staples of the chamber ensemble -- woodwinds, brass, strings, etc. -- to complement his more experimental use of synths and field recordings. The end result is a beautiful lament that conveys with impeccable clarity what it is to give one's self to their own fate, come what may.

You can stream Lou Rogai's 'Acceptance' up above. His piece Cathedral will be released in full on Nov. 8.
