All kinds of queens!

Wasn't there a choral "fanfare" for the Queen of England in one of Korngold's scores?

Drag queens count, too, especially if they're singing a wonderful Mancini song and arrangement.

Also, my favorite composer’s musical take on Elizabeth I (wish there was a better master of this suite):

John Barry's introduction to Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine (Katherine Hepburn) wife of King Henry II (Peter O'Toole) in "The Lion in Winter" is one of my favorites. I get chills as she comes sailing up the river in her barge, with that high-end choir and horns, and Douglas Slocombe's chilly photography.

dogplant, With all due respect to Douglas Slocombe, next time you watch that scene, turn the volume off. Then watch it again with the glorious music.

One of my very favorite moments in movies period. If ever there was a demonstration scene of the value of music in movies, this is it.

The obvious reference here is YOUNG BESS (1953), a production that was partly inspired by the widespread interest in that year's coronation. The film's romanticized story culminates with Elizabeth's accession to the throne, and Miklos Rozsa's extended finale is a glittering processional in the composer's most luxurious style. Revised versions may be heard in the Polydor collection and in Elmer Bernstein's Film Music Collection. The original is on the FSM archival album.

I'm not sure that this counts, but there was Wendy Carlos' main title to "A Clockwork Orange" which was based on Henry Purcell's music for the funeral of Queen Mary, which features the tasteful use of synthesizers.

And does this count - The King and 4 Queens by Alex North?

I can't believe no one has mentioned MARY, QUEEN OF SCOTS, one of the very best scores ever written about a film that deals with Queens.

Cheers
