No other player has there been,
no other lips or fingers seen
so skilled, ‘tis said in elven-lore,
save Maglor son of Fëanor,
forgotten harper, singer doomed,
who young when Laurelin yet bloomed
to endless lamentation passed
and in the tombless sea was cast.

Maglor was the second of the Sons of Fëanor. He had more of his mother Nerdanel’s gentle spirit than any of his brothers. Maglor was known for his poetry and singing, but in Tirion he swore the Oath of Fëanor and shared in the woes it bred.

The Silmarillion modern aesthetic | Nerdanel the Wise


In her youth she loved to wander far from the dwellings of the Noldor,
either beside the long shores of the Sea or in the hills; and thus she
and Fëanor had met and were companions in many journeys.

But Dior returned no answer to the sons of Fëanor; and Celegorm stirred up his brothers to prepare an assault upon Doriath.

They came at unawares and fought with Dior in the Thousand Caves; and so befell the second slaying of Elf by Elf.

 But now the rumour ran among the scattered Elves of Beleriand that Dior Thingol’s heir wore the Nauglamír, and they said: ‘A Silmaril of Fëanor burns again in the woods of Doriath’; and the oath of the sons of Fëanor was waked again from sleep.
