The chapel choir

The chapel choir is not actually for the sweet dulcet tones of choristers. In fact the knights or ladies of the Order of the Garter are given a stall in the chapel choir, where their heraldic devices — such as swords, brass stall plates, and banners — are displayed. On the death of a knight or lady, the devices are all removed, apart from the stall plates, and another member is appointed. If you visit the chapel you can see the stalls colorfully covered in the banners of the current members and the plates of all the members, past and present.
