==Synopsis==
The tale begins with [[Ilúvatar]]'s creation of spirits of lesser power than him, yet of independent nature, named the [[Ainur]] ("Holy Ones"). With them Ilúvatar makes divine music. [[Morgoth|Melkor]], one of the greatest of the Ainur, in his pride broke the harmony. Ilúvatar then began the music once more, in which [[Manwë]], Melkor's brother, sang the leading part. Yet again, the harmony was broken.

Finally, Ilúvatar began a third theme which the Ainur could not comprehend since they were not the source of it. He then ceased the music and showed to the Ainur the essence of what their song symbolized, the history of a whole world. This is known as the "Vision of Ilúvatar". The Ainur became fascinated by it, and asked Ilúvatar to put it into being.
