I’m writing a piece for 4 voices, and my tenor will sometimes switch out into a bass role, and he prefers to read bass clef when doing so.
The first issue I ran into is that when I use bass clef on a tenor voice, it transposes down an octave. It’s my understanding that tenor voice is treated as a transposing instrument in dorico, so I tried a work around suggested in another thread. I used a baritone voice and renamed in tenor, and carried on writing.
The second issue occurred once I tried to write for that voice in octave down treble clef. The clef itself doesn’t transpose, so written notes sounded concert and an octave higher than what the tenor would read.
Will this / has this been addressed? Is it possible to make my own clef so that middle C is the second space in the staff? Thanks!
