"Harps or Trumpets"

Gabriel sounds his horn, announcing his messages while choir after choir of white winged beings sing and strum harps.
In the Book of Mormon, concourses of singing angels line the paths of heaven. Meanwhile, Hindu religious law says that
angels sing to celebrate every instance where women are treated with respect and honor.
In Judeo-Christian traditions, Sandalphon is known as heaven's musical director and the patron of music for people on
earth. In the Jewish Hadith, it is said that Moses knew what time it was by when the choirs of singing angels changed
shifts. Meanwhile, Zoroastrian ahuras might sing or play tambourines, while Buddhist devas could contemplate the music
of the spheres. Music and angelic beings have gone hand-in-hand for millennia, with the harp and the trumpet being the
most popular instruments in their hands.
