The Music Of The Ainur</>



In the beginning was the Music.


At Eru’s command I raised my voice gladly and joyously, adding to the Song that he created.  At first I sang alone, hearing nothing but my own part, intent on singing for him and him alone – but slowly the song of another reached my ears.  Gradually we blended our voices into a duet of joy, singing a melody of delight for him.


Others joined us, faltering at first until we gained a harmony.  The words of the Song soared heavenward and hung like glittering stars against the void.


The symphony of Arda had begun.
