C.S. Lewis wrote of Mars and Venus, but not the solar system’s innermost planet. His good friend, J.R.R. Tolkien now has a namesake crater there, near the Mercurian north pole. The convention is that craters on that planet are named for artists and writers. I looked over this list for church musicians of the chant and polyphony stage, but only noticed des Prez and Monteverdi. What artists and writers do you find missing who should be included for names of craters?
