TOURISTS in the heart of London were treated to a special Yorkshire concert.
Hundreds of choristers who had thrilled a sell-out crowd at the Royal Albert Hall gave another, informal show in Covent Garden.
And their efforts in the heart of the bustling West End will mean further funds are raised for a worthwhile cause.
The Festival of Brass and Voices 2006 at the Albert Hall was a huge success, both in terms of performance and money raised for the Cancer Research UK charity.
Many singers stayed on in the capital to tour Covent Garden and give a selection of songs from the show to delighted shoppers.
Claire Marshall, community fundraising manager for Cancer Research, said it was a great success.
Many of the choirs - which included Almondbury Ladies Choir, Denby Dale Ladies Choir, Huddersfield U3A Ladies Choir, and the male voice choirs of Gledholt, Elland and Saddleworth - performed under the baton of Malcolm Fairless.
Their efforts will mean a big fundraising boost. The concerts have raised £200,000 since the first, in 1987.
