HOW IT ALL BEGAN

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

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.
