Solas /ˈsɒləs/ is an Irish liturgical music group and resource entity formed in 1991, performing, recording and distributing original church music by local, and mostly Catholic, composers. The group is based in Belfast but has attracted musicians and writers from across the island of Ireland, and as of 2003, has been largely in hiatus.

Solas was founded by Brian Foley, who coined the name, which comes from an Irish word meaning "light".
