ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
1. “You Can Hear Christmas Bells (In Your Heart)” --Minogue
This song reminds us that if we have lost touch with the true spirit of Christmas, we can reach back to our childhood memories to hear the bells in our heart. Minogue is a composer, arranger, recording artists, and long-time friend.

2. “Merry Christmas, Darling”—Pooler, Carpenter
The song “Merry Christmas, Darling” was written by Richard Carpenter, with lyrics by choral composer, conductor, and professor Frank Pooler. The song describes the perfect Christmas setting that lacks the most important part – her love that is far away. The connection between Rosemary and Frankie Chavez and Karen Carpenter is strong. Rosemary’s voice, like Karen’s, has wonderful warmth and depth. Frankie and Karen went to high school together in Downey, California. Karen was inspired to play drums while watching him in the Marching Band. They became friends, and he was her first drum teacher.

3. “The Little Drummer Boy”—Simeone, Onorati, Davis
What if the three Magi asked you to see the new-born king, and your only present was your music? “The Little Drummer Boy,” originally titled “Carol of the Drum,” was written in 1941 by Katherine Kennicott Davis. It was recorded first in 1951 by the Trapp Family Singers. In 1957, choral director Harry Simeone, along with Henry Onorati, made changes to the song and they became co-writers. The resulting 1958 recording by The Harry Simeone Chorale made it a Christmas classic.

4. “Angels All Around Us”
Rosemary Chavez wrote “Angels All Around Us” in 2019. The haunting refrain “We are one in the spirit” becomes an anthem to these messengers of God.

5. “Mary, Did You Know?” with lyrics by Mark Lowry and music by Buddy Greene was first recorded by Michael English in 1991. It is a meditation on the mystery of Christ from his mother Mary’s point of view. How can one imagine the life and meaning of such a child?

Rosemary Chavez has a long résumé as a singer and musician with a wide repertoire covering numerous styles of music - contemporary, jazz, rock, sacred, classical. Before residing and performing in Sedona, Rosemary sang extensively throughout Los Angeles at numerous upscale venues including fronting orchestras in Beverly Hills and as a lead singer for smaller combos at clubs including some on the famed Sunset Strip. Some of her recordings include: Female vocalist of three songs on the movie sound track ROAR starring Tippi Hedren and Melanie Griffith; Featured vocalist on Terence P. Minogue’s American Voices CD “Jesus for a Day” and featured vocalist on the “Sweet Jazz a’la mode” CD. She reunited with her mentor, internationally acclaimed conductor, Weston Noble, and the Weston Noble Alumni Choir for their 2010 European tour of Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic where she was a featured soloist.
Frankie Chavez is a drummer and percussionist with a background in many styles of music with several world tours and performances. Considered a child prodigy at 11 years old he was a featured soloist with Lionel Hampton and his Orchestra. At 11, he also had a small dance part in the movie “West Side Story.” Frankie has performed or recorded with: Stan Kenton, Woody Herman, Lionel Hampton, Gerald Wilson, The Glenn Miller Orchestra, Larry Carlton, Buddy Collete, Vicki Carr and Dee Dee Bridgewater. Other celebrities include: Pat Boone, Mitzi Gaynor and Bobby Gentry. Frankie was the inspiration for Karen Carpenter of “The Carpenters” to want to become a drummer. Not only were they friends, but he was her first drum teacher. Frankie has always remembered what his mentor Buddy Rich told him: “Just keep it going kid. Just keep it going.”
