HOW IT ALL BEGAN

Music by G.Castelli/L.Catalano
Lyrics by J.R.R. Tolkien

Il cd inizia con l’introduzione tratta da “Il Silmarillion” e narra i primi momenti in cui gli spiriti primordiali (Ainur) crearono il mondo attraverso il canto e la musica. Sono intessuti insieme i temi musicali che verranno poi ripresi lungo tutto l’arco del disco.

THERE WAS ILÚVATAR, THE ALLFATHER
AND HE MADE FIRST THE AINUR, THE HOLY ONES, THAT WERE THE OFFSPRING OF HIS THOUGHT, AND THEY WERE WITH HIM BEFORE TIME.
AND HE SPOKE TO THEM, PROPOUNDING TO THEM THEMES OF MUSIC; AND THEY SANG BEFORE HIM, AND IT CAME TO PASS THAT ILÚVATAR CALLED TOGETHER ALL THE AINUR AND DECLARED TO THEM A MIGHTY THEME, UNFOLDING TO THEM THINGS GREATER AND MORE WONDERFUL THAN HE HAD YET REVEALED.
AND THE GLORY OF ITS BEGINNING AND THE SPLENDOUR OF ITS END AMAZED THE AINUR THEN ILÚVATAR SAID: ‘OF THE THEME THAT I HAVE DECLARED TO YOU, BUT ALL INCOMPLETE, I DECIDE NOW THAT YOU MAKE IN HARMONY TOGETHER A GREAT MUSIC. AND SINCE I HAVE KINDLED YOU WITH THE FIRE, YOU SHALL SHOW FORTH YOUR POWERS IN ADORNING THIS THEME, EACH WITH HIS OWN THOUGHTS AND DEVICES.

THE BEGINNING OF DAYS

Music by L.Catalano/G.Castelli
Lyrics by
W.Collo

Il primo vero brano dell’album è diviso in tre piccole parti: dalla pace armoniosa dei primi mattini del mondo appena creato si passa alla rovinosa opera di Melkor (l’ainu caduto) che guasta le opere dei suoi pari. La sintesi giunge nel finale con il trionfo del bene e la nascita dei Due Alberi di Luce, simbolo di luce e vita.

THERE WAS ILÚVATAR, THE ALLFATHER.
AND HE MADE FIRST THE AINUR, THE HOLY ONES, THAT WERE THE OFFSPRING OF HIS THOUGHT, AND THEY WERE WITH HIM BEFORE TIME.
AND HE SPOKE TO THEM, PROPOUNDING TO THEM THEMES OF MUSIC; AND THEY SANG BEFORE HIM, AND IT CAME TO PASS THAT ILÚVATAR CALLED TOGETHER ALL THE AINUR AND DECLARED TO THEM A MIGHTY THEME, UNFOLDING TO THEM THINGS GREATER AND MORE WONDERFUL THAN HE HAD YET REVEALED.
AND THE GLORY OF ITS BEGINNING AND THE SPLENDOUR OF ITS END AMAZED THE AINUR THEN ILÚVATAR SAID: ‘OF THE THEME THAT I HAVE DECLARED TO YOU, BUT ALL INCOMPLETE, I DECIDE NOW THAT YOU MAKE IN HARMONY TOGETHER A GREAT MUSIC. AND SINCE I HAVE KINDLED YOU WITH THE FIRE, YOU SHALL SHOW FORTH YOUR POWERS IN ADORNING THIS THEME, EACH WITH HIS OWN THOUGHTS AND DEVICES.
