Hello All-- I tried searching the forum for “stress” and as you can imagine, it turned up too many results to trawl through
It would be helpful to me with my choir if the stress/unstress markings could be applied to text / lyrics as well. Since these symbols are shared with written-word literature, this would be tremendously helpful when doing choral chant works. I’m training my choir to chant and the only way I can currently use these markings is to notate each word, rather than provide the chanting tone with a string of text that could then have the stress/unstress markings added directly to that for ease and fluidity of reading. (Hopefully that makes sense.). That is much more efficient and musical than every word having its own stemless quarter note or having to add a bajillion text boxes with that character copied from the SMuFL library and converted to music text.
Just a thought anyway. Cheers!
