How to enter 4 voices on Bass line?
I'm trying to enter a 4-voice (bass/baritone/tenor 2/tenor 1) from an existing score (attached).
The notes appear in the original in that order, bass/baritone/tenor2/tenor1.
There are 2 problems that I'm encountering.
The first is that each voice has a number of measures before the next voice enters. So it's not obvious, until you get a couple of pages into it, that a new voice has to be entered. But...each new voice is higher in pitch than the previous voices. Musescore seems to want voice 1 to be the highest, voice 2 lower, voice 3 higher than 1, and voice 4 lower than 2.
I'd rather not have the 3 higher voices have lots of full measures of rests, just add the new voices as they appear in the original. I can't Implode, because the composer didn't follow Musescore's order of entry where each new voice is lower on the score...
The next problem is that each voice has a tie to a note that's in the first measure of a new voice, so I can't start with voice 1 (even though it ends up as voice 2, then 3, then 4 after all 4 voices are present).
Any help you can give would be appreciated.
