FSMC Gospel choir are presenting the Musical 'Jerusalem Joy' at our church, St.Ives on Good Friday 25th March commencing at 7pm. Written by Roger Jones, the prolific writer of modern Gospel music, the storyline is set around the time of the Jewish feast of Passover and the events that impacted the whole world. Incorporating the triumphal entry into Jerusalem, the betrayal, trial, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth the musical tells the story in typical Roger Jones' style with tempos sensitive to the occasion and script true to the original accounts of that first Easter.
This will be the third Easter that the choir has put on a musical presentation following on from 'Rock', O What A Saviour' and 'Apostle' which received much praise from audiences around the county. Directed by William Thomas and Narrated by Alison Ashby 'Jerusalem Joy' incorporates solos, duets and quartets as well as choir pieces, and is an entertaining, yet moving reminder of the Passion story . Admission is free with light refreshments at the close. Celebrations continue on Easter Sunday at 10.45am & 6pm and everyone is welcome to all of the services.
