I just thought maybe I should provide some music to go along with Leighton's The Accolade. I imagine "Nights in White Satin" by The Moody Blues is technically set in the Sixties when it was written, but for some reason the song always brings to my mind the days when knighthood was in flower. I think it is then a fitting song to accompany Leighton's painting.
"Nights in White Satin"--The Moody Blues
Of course, if you're in the mood for another of Leighton's paintings, there is always...
"Lady Godiva"--Peter and Gordon
