This uplifting and compelling cantata from Nick Perrin presents the Easter story in seven songs with short linking narratives. Adapted from the popular musical The Gospel Show, Roll Back The Stone conveys great dramatic intensity through its vivid lyrics and effective variety of different musical styles. Ideal for KS2 assembly and choir presentations.
The cantata opens with a brand new song - Hosanna Jesus - that tells of the journey along crowd-lined roads into Jerusalem. The story then moves on to Judas’ betrayal, the Last Supper, Jesus’ trial, mockery and crucifixion, finishing with the joyful resurrection song Roll Back The Stone.
"Excellent! Good variety of songs and melodies - very in tune with children's musical enjoyment. Well written, child friendly and perfect for our Easter service." Angela Hook - Teacher, East Sussex.
