One-Winged Angel

One-Winged Angel (片翼の天使 [katayoku no tenshi] or 'one-winged angel' in Japanese) is the theme of the last battle against Sephiroth in Final Fantasy VII.

Several of the verses in it were taken from Carmina Burana, a poetry collection including poems from the 11th through the 13th century. Carmina Burana was also set to classical music by Carl Orff in 1936, and it has become one of the most popular pieces of classical music ever written.

There is also another version of this song, one that appeared in Advent Children. That one is titled Advent: One-Winged Angel.
