Re: Term for the opposite of 'Melisma'

Thanks for all the suggestions an comments. My application case is the notation of christian-orthodox church music. The reason for me to look for a single term is profane: PriMus 2.0 will support this notation easier and better and for that it would be helpful to have a short term rather than a long...

Term for the opposite of 'Melisma'

Several notes sung over over a single Syllable is referred to as Melisma.
But what about the opposite, i.e. several words written under a single note?
Is there a coined term too?

Are you saying that six against four is impossible?
The left hand has to play some bass notes and isn't likely to help out. So the two 16th-sequences are required to be handled by the right hand. And yes, I don't regard this as reasonable. The arranger has to decide to pick one of both.

Re: Vocal score

An observation: The clarinet is indicated as B-flat-instrument, but the key signature is C rather than D. Is that score page correct?

For the piano reduction: shouldn't the clarinet 6-tuplets be dropped anyway, since there is no reasonable way to join the line with the piano right hand?

Re: Sibelius and font kerning

Displaying Chordsymbols means in general: put symbols from different fonts in different sizes next to each other in different directions. I assume that sibelius does not use kerning information, because it is only appliable for glyphs of the same font and size and running left to right and so it doe...

Re: Berklee guide to music notation

I bought it longer ago. It is meant for students to learn music notaiton resp. improve their skills. Homwork pages included.
There is nothing particular on "theory", at least I did not notice that, when browsing through.

Re: Support Notatio

Also, the Columbus Soft (that produces PriMus software) has also very generously donated - many thanks, as well! (I am not sure if they are the forum member, or just a visitor).
That's me, Christof Schardt.
Just wanted to thank you for providing this extremly helpful resource and community.

Re: Automatic Staff/System Spacing

Absolutely astonishing work, Jan. Agreeing to most of Johns points I would add three remarks regarding the orchestra score: 1. violin 1, bar 4,5: harpins significantly closer to the lower staff, which irritates. Obviously caused by the low mf in the bare before. But later we see other dynamics place...
