It is interesting to note that in 1867 the School magazine The Wykehamist said in its editorial 'Though the regular choristers are not yet to be done away with, we may express a hope that that their end will not be long in coming.' These words suggest that the continuance of the Quiristers since Foundation owes much to the determination of individuals over the years. The quality of their singing has of course varied over the centuries but these days we can be confident in the Quiristers' and the Chapel Choir's standing, and in its musical direction.
