This quote from Wikipedia probably explains things better than I can...
"Lux Aeterna" (pronounced [lʊks ɛtɛrna]; Latin for "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, such as Sunshine, and multiple remixes and remakes by other producers. It was also used in the Top Gear: Polar Special episode.
A version of the track was re-orchestrated with a choir and full orchestra for The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers trailer. It was arranged by Simone Benyacar, Daniel Nielsen, and Veigar Margeirsson.
The orchestrated version was made available as part of the Requiem for a Tower album release from Corner Stone Cues
This is a quote from fimucite (which is a music festival held in Tenerife) ...
You will be able to enjoy "Lux Aeterna" in minute 8:30, as another piece of the "Requiem for a Dream" soundtrack´s selection our guest composer Clint Mansell performed with his ensemble in our festival in 2009. Have a nice day!
And not to be confused with Mozart's Lux Aeterna which is part of the Requiem Mass...
Lux aeterna luceat eis, Domine:
Cum Sanctus tuis in aeternum: quia pius es.
Requiem aeternam dona eis. Domine: et lux
perpetua luceat eis. Cum Sanctis tuis in
aeternum: quia pius es.
