Roll Back The Stone
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. Adapted from the popular musical ‘The Gospel Show’, ‘Roll Back The Stone’ conveys brilliant dramatic intensity, through its vivid lyrics and effective use of different musical styles. 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’.

"Uplifting music which the children loved and found easy to learn. It was a perfect choice for our last chapel service of term. The texts slotted in perfectly - overall it was a good balance of words and music loved by everyone. We'll definitely do it again in the future."
- A. White - School Director of Music, Surrey.
