St. John's News and Events

We are so pleased to have the oboe’s beautiful sound for our recording this week, Lent I. Barrett Seals, Senior Chief Musician with the Coast Guard, is playing a favorite Albinoni Adagio, and I accompanied on the organ.

Tomasso Albinoni was born in Venice in 1671 and started as a singer and violinist. However, he had a particular fondness for the oboe; it was a relatively new instrument to Italy at the time and was the first Italian to write oboe concertos. The oboe has a double reed and was developed from the shawm.

We are very grateful to Barrett Seals for joining us and once again sharing his talent with us.
