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.
