Writing Psalm Chant

• Jun 19, 2023 - 19:59

Can anyone help me with writing chant for psalms? How to write extended lyrics under a whole note, for example?


Use Ctrl+space to embed spaces within a single lyric, use Properties to left-slign. Use Tools /' Measures to join and split measures as needed to fit the desired duration.

Marc, your guidance and the guidance of others has made all the difference for me. I still have much to learn. You saved me so much work and time. Would you be kind enough to let me know how to copy lyrics (multiple verses of psalms) from one system to the next without having to type it all again? Thank you, so much.

Glad to be able to help! To copy and paste lyrics or pretty much anything else, select what you want to copy, then press Ctrl+C to copy, then select the destination and press Ctrl+V to paste. To select all lyrics being a given start and end point click the firs,t Shift+click the last. Or right click one, then Select / More and see the dialog to refine what you want to select. Lots more options too - just see the Handbook pages on selection and on copy/paste in the Basics chapter.

Thanks for advice, Mark! I understand you, Kenny, because I also often had problems with writing complex texts. Especially when it came to term papers or essays. The topics were usually quite complex and required expert knowledge. Therefore, I turned to nursing writers to get quality results and avoid common mistakes. I liked the quality of the work done, and I received excellent feedback from my teacher.
