Re: Engraving Stenhammars Interlude from Cantata The Song (Sången)

Flauto 1: just some arbitrary details:
1. bar 6: "p dolce" I would prefer it on a common baseline
2. bar 7: slur should be closer approaching the end note (slur could be perfectly symmetric)
3. bar 30: a bar rest within stafflines should be attached to a staffrule instead of hanging free between

Re: Melisima long ending notes using extenders in lyrics

Simple Rule: Use extender in lyrics, if it is the last or only syllable of a word and spans more than one note.
Exception: Omit it, if it gets very short.

Re: Enhanced tacet

You understand it perfectly. It is kind of cue, that was the reason for a small staff.
The alternatives that I consider are those:

Enhanced tacet

A Graupner Cantata is being prepared to be debut-performed by the Thomaner-Chor, Leipzig. The editor and engraver - himself a conductor - wants to provide parts, which help the player to follow the music easily. So when a voice has a tacet-piece, instead of the usual "tacet" text he provides the sta...

Re: Music Pubisher Software

Amadeus? Is that their in-house one? No, not in-house. Amadeus was a brilliant program, which initially was delivered on a DMA-dongle for Atari-Computers including an operating system 'idris' (unix like) and producing excellent engraved scores, en par with Score, the only real competitor at that ti...

Re: Beaming across the beat &c

The bars 107 to 110 contain a threefold slow down on an identical rhythmical pattern. This is, was dominates the music here. And the beaming reflects that exactly. So this makes sense in my opinion. A division at the beat would not only bring clutter, it would also make the rhythmical idea of that s...

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?
