I’m planning on orchestrating an old choral arrangement of Gesu Bambino that I did several years ago, and I’d like to use this as a opportunity to use Dorico’s divisi feature for the choral parts.
Score is attached. But I’m a bit confused as to how this works. You can see it jumps back and forth between condensed score and open score, depending on the complexity of the section.
How does this work with divisi? If the point is for it to automatically duplicate staves for the sake of system breaks, wouldn’t this just duplicate the women’s parts and create a doubling? Or is this more a function of condensing, which I understand isn’t available yet?
If divisi isn’t the solution, what’s the most efficient way to navigate the changes between open and condensed score as they affect systems? My choral score will obviously have different system breaks than my full orchestra score.
