Avant-garde saxophonist Colin Stetson's reimagining of the famous symphony by the Polish composer Henryk Gorecki comes close to something by Explosions in the Sky or Godspeed You! Black Emperor. The story of Gorecki’s Symphony No. 3 (often called "Symphony of Sorrowful Songs") is one of a runaway success nobody, even its composer, understood. No one knew why, but critics, who by and large weren’t fans, offered theories; the piece was the lucky beneficiary of the early compact-disc boom, for instance.

Górecki's work is itself a "reimagining" of medieval modalism, one that doesn't strictly adhere to its compositional formulae. Written in the seventies, it signaled Górecki's hard break with serialism. Instead, he composed a minimally harmonic work in three slow, repetitive movements accompanying texts whose themes were loss and grief.
