Jenny Dolfen - Noldolante

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 events Maglor himself took part: Fëanor's rebellion against the Valar, the Kinslaying at Alqualondë, in which Fëanor led the first ever slaying of Elves by Elves, and the Exile of the Noldor in Middle-earth.[1]
