Dreadful imp hears angels (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

seraphim

'angels' is the definition.
(seraph is a kind of angel)

'dreadful imp hears' is the wordplay.
'dreadful' indicates anagramming the letters.
'imp'+'hears'='imphears'
'imphears' with letters rearranged gives 'SERAPHIM'.

(Other definitions for seraphim that I've seen before include "High-ranking angels" , "Angelic beings" , "Highest order of angels" , "Angels of the highest rank" , "High spirits" .)
