Hi Jason,

There's a neighboring 6/4 decorating the subdominant in m. 11
of "La Paix" from Handel's Music for the Royal Fireworks.

I am also looking for instances of the leading-tone triad serving as a
neighbor (or, pedal) six-four to IV: IV -  viio6/4 - IV. Here, I am
primarily interested in either the leading-tone triad alone or one with
a m7 added to produce the diatonic, half-diminished LT7. (The
fully-diminished LT7 in this context could be analyzed as a common-tone
diminished seventh chord, and I have plenty of examples of this).

Thanks in advance for any suggestions that you might have to offer!

Best wishes,
