    That Hallelujah chorus in the Mall is pretty darn cool.

    It’s the Niagara Chorus, an amateur choir who must have a genius for a choir master to pull that off.

    Adam, thank you for the providing this clip. A wonderful example of of the UK humor and the ability to laugh at themselves- note the cosmopolitan and racial mix of the singers.
