Part of the experience of the Jewish Passover is telling the story of the Exodus from Egypt. The story of Moses has also made it to the silver screen a few times.

David Garland presents music that's been written to help convey the drama of Moses leading the Jews out of Egypt and out of slavery, including scores for "The Ten Commandments," "Moses the Lawgiver" and "Prince of Egypt."
