I'm presently working on two large orchestral works. the particular instance is in ONE of those two scores, but they are 100 pages long.

I tried to search for them, but simply couldn't find it.
Haha, that was a legendary answer!

Re: divisi / non-divisi / unis. question

I think, trying to visualize it, a bracket would suffice.

Are you a percussionist and what instruments do you plan to cover in the future?

Re: Attribution and Use of Sources

It's probably worth mentioning that a lot of libraries will have received some sort of government funding for digital scanning programmes, which will make public access a condition. (EU cultural funding, particularly.) We do live in an extraordinary age, where I can sit in my chair and browse throu...

Re: Augmentation dots

Hello, just wondering if the augmentation dots in the upper staff are ok with the default Finale placement, or I should move them to the left, and extend the tie as well. What do you think?

Re: Opposing Seconds with dots

I just saw some work done in Sibelius with the same issue: don't know if it's a default. Finale seems to do this, too, Screenshot.png which possibly looks like a staccato dot. But this is possible when the upper voice is on the staff line. Would be more difficult to do as in your original example.

Re: Attribution and Use of Sources

Once something enters the public domain and is showed upon us through the "benevolent grace" of a library or any other institution, it remains in the public domain for all eternity. While the manuscript itself is PD, their picture can be used as "non PD". You can take a photo of ...
