Jerusalem Joy tells the story of Jesus' last week, from when he entered Jerusalem 'Riding on a Donkey' through to his death and resurrection. The music is great fun and very lively, but also has space for some wonderful poignant moments such as 'God I'm scared' and 'It is over now'.
Jerusalem Joy was first written in 1973 for Aston Manor School, Birmingham. It has been broadcast on BBC Radio and Television, and is used extensively in schools and Churches. This is a more recent recording of the musical, made in 1998.
