Time Out says

Apart from during the Blitz and the pandemic, this Good Friday performance has taken place every Easter weekend since 1876, and 2024 marks its 148th year. The Royal Choral Society’s rendition of Handel’s ‘Messiah’ (an English-language composition written way back in 1741) is without a doubt one of London’s greatest Easter traditions, and thanks to its accompaniment by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, it promises to be a rather wonderful way to spend Good Friday afternoon.
