Spoilers 

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

The song "Ave Maria" is played three times throughout the movie, with increasing levels of skill (amateur at the very beginning, when Mary's a student; intermediate; and a professional recording during Mary's apotheosis). The increasing complexity of the song mirrors Mary's development as a surgeon.
