1951 movie was Fox's initial entry in biblical-spectacular trend of late 1940s, early '50s. No composer was more sensitive at scoring films with religious subject matter than Alfred Newman (THE ROBE, SONG OF BERNADETTE, THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD.) He provides David and Bathsheba with sumptuous music for their love story, colorful music for period locales they lived in, highlights with exciting music for numerous battles and powerful music for the famous David and Goliath sequence. Everything's capped by one of Newman's most impressive finales, a dynamic setting of 'The Twenty-Third Psalm' for combined chorus, orchestra. Nearly an hour premieres in mono, as presented for the film, mastered from original optical tracks and acetate reference discs maintained in the Fox vaults. Notes by Newman authority Jon Burlingame offer insight to production, background on scoring. CD concludes with bonus stereo mix of finale from surviving multi-channel session elements made during final combined orchestra, chorus session. Alfred Newman conducts.
