Le Releveur

Written by Richard Forest. It’s in the Portland Collection.
The key moves from Em in the A part to G in the B part.


My apologies - two errors in my initial submission: the D in the fourth measure should be d (2nd d above middle c), and the E in the second measure of the last line should be a G (1st G above middle c).

Le Releveur

This tune also appears in Bm in the tunebook “Pris au Jeu” from the CD of the same name by Domino, Richard Forest’s band. The Bm version is much more flute-friendly. The title translates to “Meter Reader”.
