Salzedo breath mark
Does anyone know the original use or common use of the Salzedo breath mark? I want to use it (in my a cappella choir music) as a minor break but without breathing, so that the line goes on. Such it symbolizes both a break (or comma) and also that the notes on each side of the symbol is combined.
I would then use a regular comma or breath mark as a longer break, where one breathes.
Does this make sense to anyone?
I cannot find a proper explanation of the use of the Salzedo breath mark.
