‣26/02/2019 Bob Hendrikx Notes on Soundtrack: THE BIBLE: IN THE BEGINNING... (1964)
In 1964 Ennio Morricone wrote and recorded around 17 minutes of demo music intended for John Huston's epic film THE BIBLE. link
Producer Dino De Laurentiis as well as director John Huston were enthusiastic and Morricone was asked to score the three-hour 70-mm movie.

But a conflict emerged concerning the music rights.
Since Morricone was still under contract with RCA Records at the time, both RCA and De Laurentiis wanted the rights to the soundtrack.
In the end Morricone was rejected for the project because RCA would not allow him to work directly with De Laurentiis.
