Noldolante by Jenny Dolfen

The Noldolantë, meaning "The Fall of the Noldor", was a lament composed by Maglor, a famed minstrel and the second son of Fëanor. The song told of Fëanor's rebellion against the Valar, in which Maglor himself took part, and the exile of the Noldor from Aman. Within the lament was the story of the Kinslaying at Alqualondë, in which Fëanor led the first slaying of Elves by Elves in the history of that people.[1]
