As the season of Messiah performances gets underway, a particularly unique version caught our eye.

Classic FM may be the 'home of Christmas music', but a lover of carols from the USA may be trying to claim our title with his unique Christmas light shows set to music. His setting of the 'Hallelujah' chorus from Messiah uses 11,000 Christmas lights to bring the music to life.

Using computerised light software, Light-O-Rama, UberTuber67 from Illinois, USA has been lighting up Christmas carols and posting his videos online since 2007. So far, he's set traditional carols, including O Come All Ye Faithful and Joy to the World , as well as classical favourites like the Nutcracker , and even 'Nessun dorma' from Turandot .

This year he's posted a video of himself decorating the outside of his house, but there's no word yet as to which carols he's planning to give the Light-O-Rama treatment.
