The nine scenes of Vaughan Williams 's Job run as follows: i. Job and his family sitting in quiet contentment surrounded by flocks and herds. Satan enters unperceived and appeals to heaven. God answers : ' All that he hath is in thy power.' 2. God's throne is empty. Satan in wild triumph seats himself upon it. 3. Job's children are feasting and dancing : Satan appears and destroys them. 4. Job is quietly asleep. Satan leans over him and evokes terrible visions which dance round him, foreboding his tribulations to come. 5. The messengers announce to Job the destruction of all his wealth and the death of his sons and daughters. Job still blesses God.
6. Satan introduces Job's comforters, three wily hypocrites. Their dance is at first one of apparent sympathy, but gradually changes to rebuke and anger. Job curses God. ' Let the day perish wherein I was born.' Job invokes his vision of God. Heaven opens and reveals Satan seated on God's throne. Job and his friends cower in terror. 7. Enter Elihu, who is young and beautiful. Heaven opens again and shows God sitting on His throne surrounded by the heavenly host. 8. Satan appeals again to God, but is driven down by the Sons of the Morning. Job and his household build an altar and worship God with musical instruments. The heavenly dance continues. 9. Job, an old and humbled man, sits again surrounded by his family. He blesses his children.

' Pearl ' is perhaps the loveliest of all old English poems. It is a lament of'a man for his little daughter, who is spoken of under the pseudonym of 'Pearl'. This poem has been modernised by J. R. R. Tolkien in such a way that it keeps all the delicacy and atmosphere of the original mediaeval poem
