T is for…

Timpani is the Italian name for kettle drums.  A tambourine has a membrane like a drum and rattles like a jingle stick.  I can remember playing a triangle at an early age.  It is a metal rod bent into the shape it is named after.  It is hit with a metal striker.

Trumpets and trombones are brass instruments which are played in orchestras as well as brass bands.  Trumpets and bugles have been used to convey messages to troops.  Calls such as the Last post and reveille are known to many civilians due to Remembrance Day services.  A trumpet (or shofar) is expected to sound to signal the return of the Lord Jesus.  1 Thessalonians  4:16-17

Psalm 149:3 mentions praising God and making music to him on tambourine and harp.
