ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A Chyrell and Rodney Christmas Card is a warm-hearted album of Christmas Classics and one Original song, performed by Husband and Wife Duo, Chyrell Samson and Rodney Ronquillo.

All the nine songs on the album are arranged to sound like a Soothing Symphony Orchestra, while keeping the music as soothing and as fun, to decorate and color the Christmas Season. It's also a great way to sooth and rid of the stresses of life, to relax and help you meditate.

Perfect near a fireplace, a light Christmas party, a Christmas play, in a church christmas concert, or even just something to relax peacefully to.

Here is how the songs lineup is styled and arranged:

The First Noel:
A peaceful song, a soothing harp begins the song and brings in the vocals slowly yet peacefully. The song grows and builds layers until it reaches the final chorus where both Chyrell and Rodney break out into subtle harmonies with a florishing symphony orchestra, then it fades down to both the harp and piano.

Away in a Manger:
A peaceful song of a beloved classic. It starts of with warmly with a classical guitar. The vocals are sung gently, whlie the orchestra builds one by one, while staying as gentle as possible. The song combines the two different versions of Away in a Manger, like a mashup, but done in a way that it is melodically fluid.

Deck the Halls:
A fun, slightly upbeat song of a beloved classic, using orchestral instruments with the vocals providing gusto and harmonies. Thing of an small village scene with plenty of snow, decorations around, people happy and greeting each other. Great for a musical idea.

First Time in Years:
An original, emotional, heartwarming song and ballad with plenty of orchestral. Rodney wrote this song during a time when a dear friend of his passed away at the age of 30. He had experienced a dream during that year, where he got to see his friend during the Christmas season for the first time in years, only this time in heaven. This could also be a song about seeing the ones you love, that you have not seen for a very long time, for the first time in years during the Christmas Season. Chyrell gives an emotionally poweful performance in this song.

Hark the Herald Angels Sing:
A powerful and fun Christmas Classic. This song starts out with a suspenseful repetitive piano note as the vocals introduce the begining of the song. It builds and gets bigger, along with a contemporary beat. Then the orchestra builds and gets bigger, bringing triumph and flare. The song ends off with gusto and a powerful fanfare.

O Come, Emmanuel:
A haunting classic. The song begins with the just Chyrell's vocals set to a vocoder, but in a very suspenseful and haunting way. The instruments slowly but surely build their way in and create a world that is haunting yet peaceful and loving. It ends with just Chyrell's voice.

O Holy Night:
A popular, powerfully emotional classic. Here, Rodney gives a powerful performance with the orchestra bringing color, emotion and power all the way through. Make sure to listen to the vocals going into the final choruses. The song ends peacefully, even after going through a triumphant experience.

O Little Town of Bethlehem:
A beloved and soothing classic. The song begins very slowly with emotional strings bringing in a feeling suspense, before Chyrell's vocals brings comfort and reassurance. Then piano comes in, along with the orchestra painting a very tranquil and peaceful setting. Then it builds and becomes powerful. At the end, the piano starts to make things slow down peacefully, gently, lovingly.

Silent Night:
A beloved and very soothing classic. Here, the duo sings this song as gently and warmly, while bringing an emotionally peaceful coloring to the song. Then the Orchestra takes over it's turn to sing this beautiful ballad. Finally, the vocals break out into 2-part harmony to bring that feel-good feeling. It gets bigger and bigger. Then the orchestra does the work of ending the song into it's finale. Relaxing, soothing, tranquil, warm-hearted.

We hope that this album brings you happiness, tranquility, gentleness, comfort and heartwarming feelings as it did for us.

May your season be blessed! Merry Christmas and God Bless you all. Thank you. :)
