NPR Morning Edition: Name that Tune...

A story about Lebanon and Syria aired this morning on NPR's Morning Edition. Can you identify the song (starts at 0:31 seconds into the story) that plays in the background of the story? It sounds like it is from a movie soundtrack, but I can't place it.

It's weird to listen to morning edition at night!

I heard the same clip this morning and though it sounded familiar, I figured it was music from the production they were talking about that just happened to sound like something else I'd heard.

Shazam says it's "Lux Aeterna" by Clint Mansell & Kronos Quartet, the album is also called Lux Aeterna.

Dang it, you beat me. It's from Requiem For a Dream. Youtube. (I thought it was something from The Fountain at first, which is a killer soundtrack, by-the-by.)

I can't listen to the clip right now, but keep in mind there's a remix of Lux Aeterna that became really popular after it was used in the The Two Towers trailer.
