“Lux Æterna” (Latin, Lux Æterna: “the eternal light”) is a composition by Clint Mansell, the leitmotif of a movie from 2000, Requiem for a Dream, and the penultimate piece in the Requiem for a Dream score. The popularity of this piece led to its use in popular culture outside the film, most notably in film and teaser trailers. A version of the track was re-orchestrated with a choir and full orchestra for trailer and was renamed “Requiem for a Tower”. It was arranged by Simone Benyacar, Daniel Nielsen, and Veigar Margeirsson. Although never intended for release, after considerable demand by fans this piece was made available as part of the Requiem for a Tower’‘ album release from Corner Stone Cues. The song was also used for Sky Sports News in the United Kingdom. Read on...
