5Ed Harvest Festival Composition – Combine Harvester

5Ed came up with a very evocative image of a, ‘Combine harvester, working through the night’. This image of the lonely machine ploughing on seemed to suggest a minor key and the class quickly came up with a very suitable and memorable melody for these words. Their next idea was almost a nostalgic reference to the planting of the crops much earlier that year with the words, ‘Do you remember, planting the seeds?’ These two sections take us back and forward in time and help the song have depth and meaning.
