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.
