AllMusic Review by

Alfred Newman's score for this Hollywood religious epic is here realized in its complete form for the first time on CD. The first disc offers the original soundtrack album, and then the entire score is played out on the remaining two CDs. This approach, while perhaps too much for the casual listener, should please both fans of the original album and film music buffs alike. Thankfully, the music is lovely, illustrating the artistic heights that commercial film can reach. The reissue is beautifully remastered for remarkable sound clarity.
