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.
