>>>I am not Fra Mike, but I do know that there is an anonymous angel
in the Book of Revelations that blows a trumpet announcing the end of the
Apocalypse and the beginning of Judgement Day. Since there were only two
angels ( I think) mentioned by name in the Bible, Michael (Archangel) and
Gabriel, someone years ago probably tagged the angel Gabriel as the trumpet

The unnamed horn blowing angel is depicted in many works of art dating back
at least 1000 years.<<<

In the apocryphal Book of Tobit, we meet Raphael, and in the Kaballah (sp?)
we meet Uriel, the "missing" fourth Archangel.

And in the Eastern Orthodox tradition, there's actually several more.  It's
actually a pretty crowded room, the Archangel Division of the Heavenly

But back to music....
