Trouble with the audio sample?

"Rose of May", sometimes mistranslated as "Loss of Me", is General Beatrix's theme, from Final Fantasy IX. It plays whenever Beatrix has a revelation of the events of the game.

"Rose of May" is written in a natural minor scale. Its initial notes are actually the progression of the first four pitches of any natural minor, making the theme a convenient way of learning how to play such scales for any given key.

"Rose of May" is mixed into "Beatrix and Steiner: Protecting my Devotion," which is played during the battle with Bahamut and Kuja to protect Alexandria.
