Wakefield Cathedral choir has wowed passengers with an impromptu performance 38,000 feet high in the sky.

The group was returning from a visit to Krakow in Poland when it was asked by the captain if it would sing while on board the Jet2 Flight.


Singing mostly using music sheets on their phones, they were given a large applause after their short burst of the Tantum Ergo and the Amen.


Wakefield Cathedral's Canon Precentor, the Revd Canon Leah Vasey -Saunders said: "This is taking the English choral tradition to new heights!

"It was great to be asked, and a fantastic end to our choir tour."

The choir's visit to Poland also saw a performance in a salt mine 101m underground as well as appearances at numerous churches and a music festival.
