Lux Aeterna is an album by Dave Fitzgerald. Released in 1997.

This is the second solo album from flute and saxophone player Dave Fitzgerald who was a founding member of Iona. Recorded partly in the studio, and partly in the St. Edmundsbury Cathedral, England, Lux Aeterna covers a number of themes, including the Crucifixion in the chilling "Golgotha"; the Resurrection, and of course, the meaning of 'Light'. The album contains numerous instrumentals, but several tracks include vocals. Guest appearances include Adrian Snell, Claire Tomlin (Monteverdi Choir, Ex Cathedra choir), Joanne Hogg (lead singer of Iona), Nick Beggs (ex Iona and Kajagoogoo) and the St. Edmundsbury Cathedral Choir.
