Slur in vocal music

Postby avicitiffany » Tue Dec 19, 2017 4:39 am

Hi all,

I have a choir score and at a certain bar, sopranos divide into layer 1 & 2 (on one staff).

Both layers are a melisma, so should I slur BOTH layers (one slur over and one slur under)? Or just the upper layer?

Slurring both layers makes sense musically, but I wonder if notationally it is overcrowding things? Is there a rule? I have not yet checked Gould chapter, but will do so.

Thanks for any advice!



I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
