Thin square brackets for voice groups?
I am scoring four songs for SSATB choir. Generally, in vocal scores, staffs that belong to one voice group are indicated by a thin square bracket before the winged square bracket that groups all staffs. In the attached example you see a ATTB-score in which the two tenor-staffs are spanned by such a thin bracket in each system. In my case, I would need to group the two soprano-staffs.
I have checked many scores that were published to Musecore.com, but have not seen anyone doing this in the conventional way. Instead, some have used the accolade-bracket for this purpose, but I find this too distracting (and too baroque). Normally, in vocal score, the accolade is reserved for a piano-part (if present) for rehearsing purposes.
I tried adding a second thick winged bracket to span just the two soprano parts (Musescore allows for this), but this looks ugly.
My question would be: is there a way in Musescore to attach this type of thin square brackets to each system, as shown in the picture? I have searched through these fora and handbook, but cannot find an answer. This may be due to lack of vocabulary, I might be searching for the wrong words (I'm Dutch) - in that case: my apologies.
Let me end by saying how absolutely delighted I am with the quality of Musescore. I'm new to the program, but found it very easy to start with and very complete (well, almost ;-)). I have had a great time re-scoring 4 Madrigals by Martinu to accommodate the original Czech lyrics (they are presently only available in an old german version).
