Within the Realm of a Dying Sun is the third album recorded by Dead Can Dance, the duo composed of 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 mellifluous Oriental overtones, especially on the track titled “Cantara.”
