Dying Sun

Within the Realm of a Dying Sun

Within the Realm of a Dying Sun is the third album recorded by the Dead Can Dance duo, Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry, in 1987.

The cover's photograph was taken in Paris, at the Père-Lachaise cemetery. It features the grave of the politician Raspail.

Lisa Gerrard's vocals feature prominently in the second half of the album, and her singing style often has wailing Arabic overtones, especially on the track titled Cantara. It is in contrast to the dreamlike first half, but builds powerfully as the album progresses.
