Score with no dots!

Post by benwiggy »

At a rehearsal last night, we were presented with a score printed by a large, well-known UK publisher, in which every single dot was missing! Dots on i and j: Missing. Fullstops. Missing. Dots on Dotted notes: Missing. (It's in 3/4.)

As the conductor said: most of it is obvious, but we have no way of knowing if any part is staccato! :lol:

I can't imagine how it happened: some kind of weird prepress anomaly. All other text and symbols were there: staff lines, hairpins, all correct.

It's always troublesome when things go missing. Here's a fermata without the vault.

Thanks, benwiggy. I think I might have found a niche there.

Agatha Christie might have made something splendid of this - "The Missing Dots Mystery".

Just imagine the setting in an old music publishing house. Eerie.
