Someone contacted me about a piano score of Bernstein's Ten Commandments

Has anyone ever encountered this rare item?

Well Hello Mike Q! It's been many years!

Aside from its presence in libraries, I've only seen THE TEN COMMANDMENTS become available once in all my years...and I bought it!

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS (Piano Score Book) (1956) (16 Themes) (50 pages) (Famous)
01. The Bullrushes
02. Bithia's Bathing Float
03. Rameses Theme
04. Nefretiri's Theme
05. Moses - The Prince of Egypt
06. Joshua and Lilia
07. The Hebrews in Bondage
08. Court Dance
09. Moses Crosses The Desert
10. Jehtro's Daughter's Dance
11. Word of God
12. The Song of Joseph
13. Exodus
14. Bacchanal
15. Moses Reaches Mt. Nebo
16. Theme of God

Also, there was in individual sheet music for the love theme, later reissued in The Elmer Bernstein Collection.

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS (Theme from...) ("Love and Ambition") (1956) (Famous)
THE TEN COMMANDMENTS ("Love and Ambition") (1956) (From: The Elmer Bernstein Collection) (Leonard)

As far as I know, that's all there is.
