Elmer Bernstein's 5 CD Set Box Set would be a wondrous delight to find under the Tree!

I agree, but I would prefer a 4 CD Box Set, if the 5th CD is full of interpretations of the "Egyptian Dance" performed by Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and The Rolling Stones.

The Disco Version of "In the Bulrushes" is a hot track!

Really, Thanksgiving? If that is so then thank Jehovah! I've stopped myself many times from getting on the board and trying, in my own small insignificant way, to goose the powers that be and persuade them to get it out for us already. Perhaps the time has come and that is really exciting. I JUST CAN'T WAIT!

I dunno, I think there are more... appropriate... holidays to link this potential release to.

If it's a big expensive set then Christmas would be a good time to release it, say early December.

I've been reading an interesting book lately: "Written In Stone," by Katherine Orrison, all about the making of THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. Consisting of various interviews with numerous people involved in the production of the film, it's not exactly a "making-of" kind of book, but rather more a memoir of various people's involvement with it.

There's a short chapter on Elmer Bernstein, who mentions what it was like to work with DeMille, with an amusing anecdote about what DeMille wanted for the "Exodus" scene. Bernstein also mentions that at least 20% of the music he wrote was rewritten, though the text doesn't elucidate if this was before or after orchestra recordings.

Here's hoping that whatever recording comes out will include deleted and alternate takes, because it sounds as if a lot of painstaking effort was put into this score.

(Among other things, one of the special effects creators refers to footage for a "Plague of Frogs" sequence which never made it into the finished picture. Makes me wonder if Bernstein ever wrote, or recorded, music for this, and other, unused sequences.)

I don't think that's the holiday Joe is referring to...

Yeah I know what you mean, but the set is going to cost a few bob & people are used to spending in December & may want to treat themselves, or even have it as a Christmas pressy. Whatever, it'll be a great release.

The children of Israel were in bondage in Egypt for many generations. So also must we have patience. Our Deliverer [ CD ] will be coming. For it has been promised.

I think I know that anecdote. "Can you give me something snappy, something like 'Onward Christian Soldiers'? Huh? Can you write something like that, kid?"

The thing Cecil was right about was the scene's requiring an upbeat march, to make the escape from Egypt seem more hasty than the footage managed to suggest. Without the music, the actual Exodus scene seems sort of a plodding, foot-dragging affair.

Which is why I expected it last spring.

In the meanwhile we can do with next week's MIRACLE (from Bernstein)! smile

It did have an actual release many moons ago from Percepto,on a cd-r. A nice pressed version would of course be most welcome, together with informative booklet and photos.
