I have an SATB song with five verses. In the second verse, two of the tenors split off and sing the soprano line and the remaining tenors hum the original tenor line.
I can think of two ways of achieving this:
- Create a new staff for the tenors. Yes, this will work, but the staff will be there for all five verses, being empty for four verses.
- Create an extra voice in the tenor staff. Yes, this will work, but it becomes a bit hard to read as the voices cross each other.
Is it possible, in the full arrangement, to only display five staves in the second verse and only four in the other four verses?
