Album Notes
Choral Arts Ensemble has been inspiring audiences throughout southeast Minnesota with performances of outstanding choral music since its founding by Rick Kvam in 1985. The singers of CAE are active community members from a wide variety of professions, including teachers, farmers, doctors, bankers, computer technicians and church leaders, all drawn together to create excellent music and contribute to the artistically thriving life in and around Rochester.

Now in its twenty-sixth season, the seventh under the artistic direction of Michael Culloton, Choral Arts Ensemble will continue to celebrate music’s power to delight and inspire with performances throughout the region. CAE will also maintain its commitment to music from all genres and historical eras and will especially support the creation of new music through its active commissioning program.

Mary Joyce Frantz was the daughter of John and Joan Joyce, wife of Robert Frantz and mother of a son and daughter. She was a lifelong Rochester resident, a nurse and a talented artist/photographer. Mary was serving on the Choral Arts Ensemble Board of Directors at the time of her untimely death from cancer. As a memorial to Mary, family and friends set up a special ten-year commissioning fund, focusing on Christmas carols because the CAE Christmas concert was her favorite. This recording is a capstone to this special Mary Joyce Frantz Memorial Christmas Carol commissioning project.
