AllMusic Review by

This Decca 10" LP was notable for being among the earlier Hollywood soundtracks of a non-musical film to be issued commercially. Victor Young brought out all of the forces of the orchestra to evoke the Old Testament setting and story, in lush terms that translated well, even in monaural sound, and the Paramount Symphony Orchestra rises to the occasion with the "themes from the score" of Cecil B. DeMille's epic. Later reissued on a 12" LP paired with Young's music for The Quiet Man on the other side.
