Concerning the Valar

The Ainur were created by Eru before the dawn of days. In his timeless halls they played before him, and their music was glorious. Melkor, the most powerful of the Ainur, often wandered into the void in search of the imperishable flame, and thoughts not akin to the music were in him, and a dischord spread through the music. Eru upheld his hand and a second melody arose, and strived with the dischord of Melkor, but once again the clamour prevailed and many of the Ainur were distraught and fell silent. Then a third melody arose, sweet and sad, and it could not be quelled. In this music was conceived the world that is and Eru said "Eä" Let it be! Some of the Ainur then departed to Eä, to help achieve the vision, and they were the Valar, whose powers were tied to the earth and could not leave it.
