Welcome To The Rock
From Plank Road Publishingby John Riggio
This is a stately march dedicated to the traditionally celebrated landing place of the Pilgrims – Plymouth Rock! Cape Cod notwithstanding, there is an oral account that explains why Plymouth Rock is so special. A church elder named Thomas Faunce, when he was a boy, was told the rock was the landing spot by some of the first Pilgrims. Plymouth Rock has since become an American icon.
The song itself is simple, intended for primary singers. There are only four spoken lines during the instrumental section of the song. If these lines seem too difficult for your wee ones, you might try enlisting some slightly older classmates to read them. Happy Thanksgiving! (from Music K-8, Vol. 27, No. 2)
