As we get into the festive spirit, there's live music today from a composer who, for many, epitomises Christmas thanks to his world-famous choral pieces and arrangements - John Rutter. Some of his music will be performed live in the studio by harpist Catrin Finch, who has just releaed a new CD of Rutter's music called "Blessing". She is joined by soprano Elin Manahan Thomas.

Mexican lyric tenor Rolando Villazon visits the studio ahead of La Boheme at the Royal Opera House and conductor of the Gabrieli Consort Paul McCreesh discusses his upcoming concert at the 2012 Spitalfields Winter Festival.

Main headlines are at 5pm and 6pm.
