I think I’m a little confused about the best way to write choral divisi -
What I want is for the opening of a piece to be unison voices (with some appropriate markings indicating when men and women sing)
Then at a later point the unison line needs to spread out into choral short score, with SA on one stave and TB on the other.
Then further on I’d like this to spread out into full score with divisi sopranos each with their own stave
then finally all back to unison at the end.
In an old (nameless) model, I’d have separate instruments for the unison line, the short score, and the choral score, and just hide whatever I’m not using.
I’m just wondering if there’s a better way to do this with Dorico’s player-instrument model? I notice in the tutorial videos automatic arrow symbols for choral divisi is mentioned, but I can’t work out how to create the division from choral short score (unless this isn’t yet a feature?)
Many thanks in advance
