Unlike "Born Anew" or "Fighting Fate", "Nascent Requiem" has no lyrics, and is much more fast-paced, perhaps because of the battle's forced speed, due to Orphan's Doom spell. It contains the altered form of the summary motif (starting at 2:21) of "Vanille's Theme", particularly at 0:50 to 1:13 and 3:41 till the end of the loop.
"Nascent Requiem" is the nineteenth track of the fourth disc of the game's Original Soundtrack.
Masashi Hamauzu included a prototype of "Nascent Requiem", named "Last Battle Prototype+", in Final Fantasy XIII: Original Soundtrack PLUS
"Nascent Requiem" plays during the Beginner's Primer summary for Chapter 12.
It plays during Lightning's final duel with Garland at the Empyreal Paradox in Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy. After being purchased on the PP Catalog, it can also be picked by default for battles including Lightning or taking place at Orphan's Cradle.
