Simple first & second endings in multiple parts of a piece
I often need to score something that has an AABB form where only the ends of the A and B parts differ (e.g. fiddle tunes). The obvious way to write it is for each part (A and B) to have first and second endings...
For a simple example:
|: xxx|xxx|xxx|xxx|xxx|xxx|1st ending xxx|xxx:|2nd ending xxx|xxx| (A part)
|: xxx|xxx|xxx|xxx|xxx|xxx|1st ending xxx|xxx:|2nd ending xxx|xxx| (B part)
where xxx is a measure of music
Unfortunately the 1st and 2nd endings don't play back correctly in the B part. I'm guessing that's because Musescore doesn't understand the scope of the endings. Is there any way to make the scope clear?
Or would the B parts need to be called 3rd and 4th endings, even though that's quite contrary to the logic of the music? And if so, what happens if the whole thing needs to be repeated (AABBAABB)? Are we into 7th and 8th endings?
Thanks for any clarification or helpful work-arounds.
