I apologize for the bad advice.
As Gould makes clear in the quote in my post above, many people hyphenate lyrics in English exactly like German: the way we actually say it. So no apology was necessary.

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

I use keyboard commands for the finger numbers, elisions and brackets and "play" them in with my left hand. The slurs are done with the slur tool and the line with the line tool. I would probably use a couple of guide lines in this case. It would take a very short time to accomplish since it would j...

. The scores would be strictly for reference/library purposes,
If it is for archival purposes, I would probably transcribe it exactly as the choir sings it.

Re: New to engraving...am I on the right track?

Consonants should NEVER be placed "where they sound", which is a hideous trend in recent years. Not that recent. As I mentioned on a different thread, I'm pretty sure (it's been a while) that I was putting consonants at the beginning of syllables in cases like "stor-my" 50 years ago with A. Arnstei...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

Thank you very much for your response. Daniel. I posted the following example of what I need at your site in January: Dorico fingering.jpg I was able to accomplish this in Dorico, but it involved a couple of workarounds and was generally too laborious to be practical. Also, I wasn't able to make the...

Re: Dorico Pro 2 released

Thanks, bewiggy. A lot of great improvements in Dorico. I was particularly glad to see the standard between-the-staff position for the number of a multi-measure rest for double staffed instruments as an option. However, as Schonbergian points out, the slurs in their examples still have the same tubb...

Re: Short Slurs (Octaves)

I hope this example is self-explanatory. I prefer the older style of splitting passages like this between the staves.

Composers vs Engravers: Stems and Slurs part 10

I find it fascinating to see how closely notation can parallel a composer’s thought process. At the very beginning of the opening theme of Chopin’s Etude op. 25 no. 7, Chopin’s always-faithful copyist writes: Chopin Etude op 25 no 7 MS Copy.jpeg This was engraved exactly as it stands by the first Fr...

Re: New to engraving...am I on the right track?

Welcome to the forum, AsstGen2018. I think you are doing a fine job, but do agree with benwiggy about the spacing unless there are other considerations that we are unaware of. Suggestions: 1. It would be best practice to provide cautionary F naturals in m. 10. 2. The last bar on page two should end ...
