I am typesetting a piece for orchestra with narrator.
The Narrator part is spoken, mostly not in rhythm, but sometimes in rhythm.
I would like to have the non-rhythmic (ie most of the) narration in boxed text at the top of the page, and as system text so it extracts to all the instrumental parts. But where it is not rhythmical I don’t want to have a Narrator stave.
For the bits where the narration is in rhythm, I’d like to have a single-line stave with the words as lyrics below the staff. I also need this to extract to all the instrumental parts.
I managed to achieve these effects in the original Sibelius typesetting, but not sure the best way to manage all these things in Dorico. Any suggestions very welcome.
Thanks in advance. Bernard
