Do the Reformers ever address whether Christ could have atoned for angels?

Title basically says it all. I would be curious how later Reformers after Socinius arose would answer this question. Since Christ would have to take an angelic nature, I'm assuming He would have to suffer in His angelic spirit, but since He would have no body, there would be no cutoff point of death, so it would seem He would only have to suffer for even just a single moment in order to atone for angelic sins, His divine personhood giving His suffering infinite worth even if it lasts only for 1 second. Idk.

God’s Wisdom is infinite, so it is fairly clear that if God had willed to ordain a way for fallen angels to be saved He could have done so. However since it is not revealed to us, and our wisdom is not sufficiently great to speculate on a way, it is futile to hypothesise on how this could have been done if God had so willed it.
