Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a rendition of Handel's "Messiah".

The Royal Albert Hall always performs one of the best, when conductor Brian Wright leads the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra alongside a choir of 500 voices -- made up of the Goldsmiths Choral Union, English Concert Chorus and Highgate Choral Society.

Solo singers will include Rebecca Evans, Jennifer Johnston, Timothy Robinson and Alastair Miles.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) was founded by Thomas Beecham in 1946. Subsequent principal conductors have included the great André Previn and Vladimir Ashkenazy.
