FINAL FANTASY III: Priestess Aria - Nobuo Uematsu, CELLO COVER

Arrangement for cello octet, Manuel Santapau.


"Elia, the Maiden of Water" was first released in the original version of the game's soundtrack, of which it was the twenty-sixth track. It was remastered for the original soundtrack of the DS version as "Priestess Aria" (known as "Aria, Maiden of Water" in the game's Gallery), of which it is the thirty-first track. It was also included in the theme for the introduction movie of the DS remake, "Zephyr Memories - Legend of the Eternal Wind", the first track of the Original Soundtrack. "Priestess Aria" is the personal theme of Aria Benett, the last maiden of the Temple of Water. It can be heard as the background theme for the Wrecked Ship, and during the cutscene of her death. Aria's theme is "Priestess Aria," which is also sampled in the opening theme from Final Fantasy III. "Once You Meet Her" is a vocal arrangement of her theme featured in the album Final Fantasy: Pray. Aria is the first protagonist character to have a theme named for them. Aria Benett, also known as Elia is a guest character from Final Fantasy III. She temporarily joins the party at the Wrecked Ship to restore the Water Crystal and supports the party with protective magic. She is also the first character in the series to have a personal musical theme.
