Different time signatures for different Instruments
A cast member friend in a production I am in brought in a piano score for Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells that he had just purchased.
The score was published in 1980 and included an analysis by David Bedford (as a way of identifying it if anyone is familiar with it.)
One part that had us stumped was the bass line in the score was in a different time signature that the treble.
Our musical director was also perplexed as he had never seen anything like it.
Has anyone else seen or heard of such a practice?
Attached is a copy of part of the score showing the times.
This is the beginning of the bass part of the score at bar 17, and continues for the next 16 bars.
