I must confess myself a little bit stuck. I had some thoughts that the last one could be Fingon, because "missing" = "gone", and he sings nigh to Angband when rescuing Maedhros. But I can't explain the first part, and it certainly doesn't start with C.

Back in the days when I was a regular on Palantir of Fortune, that was my favourite letter to guess, and I dedicated a fair bit of time looking for sentences with no Es. There are quite a few such, but most are along the lines of "it was raining hard", not quotable material. But then I found it, the best quotable E-less gem in Tolkien. "Uglúk u bagronk sha pushdug Saruman-glob búbhosh skai."
