For most classical music audiences, there is only one Magnificat: Bach's. But British composer John Rutter refuses to let that intimidate him. Rutter has written his own Magnificat, which will receive its first West Coast performance Saturday by the Master Chorale of Orange County under the direction of William Hall at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa. "You just have to come out from under the shade of the great masters," Rutter, 45, said in a recent phone interview from his home in London.

These two releases, artfully produced, carefully performed, tastefully put together, are reminders that, for many of us, the Britishness of Christmas is one of its musical charms. Effortless choral blending and specifically mellow instrumental playing put the spotlight on the familiarity and poignancy of the carols and the tunes. Recommendable for tree-trimming; any surprises here are pleasant ones.

The musical distance between Bach's B-minor Mass and Rodgers and Hammerstein's "South Pacific" can be measured in light years, but Maurice Allard, leader of the Orange County Master Chorale, traverses the distance with apparent ease. "I believe I'm a communicator," Allard declared. "Whether it's the emotional outpouring of the B-minor's 'Crucifixus' or the uninhibited joy of 'Younger Than Springtime,' you are still communicating something."

A photographer was sentenced to prison Thursday for trying to extort $3 million for topless pictures of superstar Cameron Diaz he had taken early in her career. John Rutter was sentenced by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael E. Pastor to three years and eight months for perjury and attempted grand theft. The charges against Rutter, 42, stemmed from a daylong photo shoot in 1992 in an abandoned Los Angeles-area warehouse. Diaz, then a 19-year-old unknown, posed topless.

It took more than practice to land Jerry Coleman and 41 other Irvine Valley College singers a performance this weekend at Carnegie Hall. It also took some luck. Coleman, a 52-year-old Laguna Niguel insurance agent who has been singing for fun since childhood, decided on a whim to join the college's chorale soon after moving to the area two years ago. A few months after he joined, the group was offered a gig at the famed New York City concert hall. "I had no idea this would happen.
