No harvest celebration would be complete without songs and, whether it’s singing traditional favourites like We Plough The Fields And Scatter or some of the bumper crop of contemporary harvest songs there is always something to sing about during Harvest Festivals.
Here are our Top 5 Harvest Songs:
• Harvest Song from Songs for EVERY Season. This laid-back but positive song gives thanks for the harvest. The farmer’s year in recounted, through the process of preparation, sowing, growing and finally harvesting.
• Harvest Samba from Songs for EVERY Occasion has a Latin style! It’s a musical feast with great descriptions and really fun rhymes that is guaranteed to be very popular with the whole school. It has some two-part singing towards the end of the song
• A Big Red Combine Harvester from the Niki Davies Book of Autumn and Winter Songs. Simple lyrics and repetitive melodies ensure this is the perfect song for younger voices
• Everybody Praise Him from A Combined Harvest is the perfect song which can be used as a reminder of all the good things we’ve been given and encouragement for everyone to come together in gratitude. Perfect for children aged 5 – 11.
• Harvest Festival from S!ng Harvest - a great song to show all the wonderful gifts that will have been given at the harvest table.
