Hearing the voices of angels?

You can listen here and decide for yourself. I know it's unfair to say this, but I guess I'd be more convinced if the angels weren't just singing with Pentecostals. But then, maybe these charismatics are simply the Christians who are listening closely enough.

Fr. Matkin, I hate to spoil things but those voices sound an awful lot like the "celestial choirs," as they were called then, heard at the end of Hollywood tearjerkers of the thirties and forties ("Wuthering Heights" being a fine example). At least they used real voices then. I'm in the music biz and the "voices" heard in those sound files are are almost certainly an overdubbed synthesizer.

Besides, as is well known, real angels only sing in RC, Orthodox and Anglo-Catholic churches.

I was thinking more along the lines of the Walt Disney singers from their golden age movies like Sleeping Beauty and Snow White.

Very similar indeed with those wobbly sopranos and, in this jaded age, cringe inducing.
