What is your favorite score to a movie about a medieval knight(s)?

I am not looking for just any medieval-set movie. It has to be about a knight(s).

I am not looking for pseudo-knights like Batman or The 13th Warrior.

I AM looking for movies like The First Knight or Excalibur.

Most underrated and one of my all-time favorites... THE BLACK SHIELD OF FALWORTH (1954)


Clip:

Intrada released the Salter parts way back in a 1994 compilation (in seriously compromised sound) and I've been wishing for them to give us an improved version for decades. In the meantime, their old scratchy and rather muffled release remains in my "still-regularly-gets-played" category.

does Flesh+Blood count? Is Hauer a knight-turned-mercenary or something?
or the young love interest for Jason Leigh, isn't he a knight?

Yeah, Ivanhoe & Knights of the Round Table. I never cease to be amazed just how good the FSM Knights sounds, great stereo from 1953! And I love the Intrada re-recording of Ivanhoe.

Army of Darkness
Camelot ('67; also, cuz Franco Nero is the prettiest knight there's ever been).
Excalibur
Henry V (’44)

I've never seen this 1968 French TV series and likely never will, but the Georges Delerue score is one of my favorites. Try the opening main title theme, then the series of gentle cues starting at 4:32 and running to 13:04, followed immediately by some more propulsive music.
