Elmer Bernstein - The Ten Commandments - Soundtrack Review

This week, let’s discuss another epic score for an epic movie of Hollywood’s Great Times. Normally, these movies will be shown around Christmas holidays, but I was in the mood to discuss this score this week, and I did not talk so much about one of my favourite composer - Elmer Bernstein - on my blog so far. Therefore, it is time for another score by him, this week “The Ten Commandments”. The movie I watched the movie when I was a teenager and still like it. Cecil B.

I did not discuss any of the Star Wars scores on my website so far, so let’s take this one even though I do not think it is the best soundtrack of the series.
