Dignified Protestants now say that truth is relative. Evangelicals only allow that it is relative to current top-40 music charts.
The German word for trombone is posaune meaning big trumpet. The trombone is a big trumpet. The bass trombone actually can create the loudest volume in sheer decibels and since the Last Trumpet must be heard round the world, it will be a Bass Posaune - Bass Trombone. To get an idea of what it may sound like, listen to Wagner.
I don't hear anything and my speakers are turned on.
Hector Berlioz on the trombone:"In my opinion, the trombone is the true head of the family of wind instruments, which I have named the 'epic' one. It possesses nobility and grandeur to the highest degree; it has all the serious and powerful tones of sublime musical poetry, from religious, calm and imposing accents to savage, orgiastic outburst. Directed by the will of the master, the trombones can chant like a choir of priests, threaten, utter gloomy sighs, a mournful lament, or a bright hymn of glory; they can break forth into awe-inspiring cries and awaken the dead or doom the living with their fearful voices."Amen.
They sound good with Glenn Miller, too.
Or Jimmy Pankow with Chicago.
Wow! I can hear it at work. That is fantastic.
