- AH, Teacher, East Sussex.
A dramatic and uplifting cantata, which presents the Easter story through seven songs and readings. Roll Back The Stone makes an unforgettable presentation, ideal for KS2 assembly, choir presentations or Easter service.
This compelling piece from Nick Perrin presents the Easter story in seven songs with short linking narratives. Roll Back The Stone conveys great dramatic intensity through its vivid lyrics and effective variety of different musical styles. Suitable for ages 7 to 11.
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.
