Son Rise

Arranged for adult choirs, schools and church groups, Son Rise tells the story of Easter. The adult choral version contains well-loved Bible readings to supplement the songs, guiding you through Holy Week to the Crucifixion and ending with the triumphant Resurrection of Jesus.

Why not supplement the six songs with some favourite hymns and songs for the Easter season. As with all our packages, Son Rise can be arranged for 2, 3 or 4 voices depending on your requirements.

The youth version combines music, dance and drama to tell the Easter story. It is designed to be rehearsed over a short period of time and can be performed by any number of children. There are opportunities for the children to compose their own sound effect music, improvise some of the dialogue and create their own dance, all of which enhance the learning experience as the children can take ownership of their performances.

Follow the lead reporter for Jerusalem Today, Samuel Bar-Jonah, as he reports on the whole story from the arrival of Jesus in Jerusalem, through his arrest, trial, crucifixion and triumphant resurrection. Through Samuel’s reports we learn the truth of the story and the events that surround it.
