Handel's Messiah on Good FridayThe Royal Choral Society presents its renowned Good Friday performance of Handel's 'Messiah' at the Royal Albert Hall on Good Friday continuing a tradition which, for many, marks the start of Easter - the Royal Choral Society's Good Friday performance stretches back to 1878. For those who find the year flat and empty between Prom seasons, this afternoon performance of the world's favourite sacred work may help in some way to fill the gap, offering a similar mixture of patriotism, good cheer and excellent performers. Messiah is the Baroque composer's most famous creation and amongst the most popular works in Western choral literature, presenting Jesus's life and its significance according to Christian doctrine. It is thought that the Royal Choral Society has sung the work more than any other choir - estimated at around 280 times.
