Where would I notate the dynamics if I'm writing an SATB score with lyrics?

So, where would I put the dynamic markings for a compressed SATB score with piano. Do I put it above the line, or below the line.


If you by "compressed" mean that SA share one staff and TB the other, then S dynamics should always be above, A always below. Similar for TB.

If a choral voice has its own staff, the dynamics should always be above.
