[Editor's Note: The following is a combined review with RABBIT EARS CLASSIC BIBLE STORIES.]--Four biblical tales characterize God's many aspects. Amy Grant's expansive narration relates God's creation of the world, man and woman, and their the fall from grace. Accompaniment by Bela Fleck and the Flecktones starts chaotically and transforms into a cohesive, majestic score. Kelly McGillis emphasizes Noah's human qualities, with Paul Winter musically accenting the magnitude of building the giant ark and the seemingly endless days of rain. In the second production, Danny Glover has the dramatic flair of a preacher as he relates Moses's early life and escape from Egypt. Sounds of Blackness provides a rich gospel chorus, echoing the people's suffering and their joy at release. And as Ben Kingsley's sensory details give a cinematic sense to Moses's delivery of the Ten Commandments, Lyle Mays extends the mood with a sweeping musical composition.
