Colin Morris explores the mystery which we call CHRISTMAS and asks why it happened the way it did.

He's joined by John Rutter who directs the Southbank Sinfonia and Pegasus in a selection of his own CHRISTMAS compositions and arrangements of well loved Carols.

The service comes from the Church of St Mary in Islington and is led by Bishop Stephen Oliver and Graham Kings, vicar of St Mary's.

Music includes: Jesus Child (Rutter); Hark! The Herald Angels Sing; Nativity Carol (Rutter); Star Carol (Rutter); O Little Town of Bethlehem; O Come all ye Faithful.
