9. Ainulindalë

VALAR: [Singing] Ambar yestuva
Antëalvë I anna e cuivi
Tultëalvë nauvualyë
Ortuva o I mornië

MELKOR: [Over the Valar, Chanting.] Mornië

VALAR: [Singing] Ambar yestuva
Antëalvë I anna e cuivië


VALAR: [Singing] The world will begin
It is!
We gave the gift of life
Will be!
We summoned you to be
Rise from the darkness
The world!

MELKOR: [Over the Valar, Chanting.] Darkness

VALAR: [Singing] The world will begin
It is!
We gave the gift of life
Will be!

[AN: This is part of my script for a Silmarillion movie (not that it'd ever be made, but it's still fun to write!) I had to just work out the translation, because I lost my origanal one. Oh, and I think Melkor would have been a little more subtle with what he sang but I really wanted it to contrast. I've written music for this piece (that is to say it has a tune, I can't write it down though!) and the Valar's singing is meant to sound like a part of the music, whereas Melkor's is meant to really be heard. He's practically yelling it.
