(Spring 2010) This is the very first time that I have written two different stories for the same arrangement, and there's good reason! This men's chorus arrangement of "Ye Elders of Israel" will always be a significant contribution to this website for its logistical breakthroughs. With this piece I FINALLY learned how to erase lines of empty measures for voices not singing/playing during the piano introduction, like the first 7.75 measures of this arrangement. My notation software has said that it lacks the capability to do so, but while searching for how to put clef changes mid-measure (see below) on finale's support discussion board, I came across a user who shared how to get around the "measure optimization" problem with my software (it involves two different mass editing tools...very exciting for me, but probably boring as heck for you)! Voila! Secondly, "THEY" said that those pesky mid-measure clef changes couldn't be done either...BUT YOUR'S TRULY FIGURED OUT HOW TO CHEAT IT! It was quite a process, cutting measures down to 2/4 and even 1/4 to put in the clef change, then combining the measures back to 4/4. I CHEATED THE SYSTEM!!! The five-year-long debate in the Waite household on whether or not to upgrade another $200 to another notation software ends with a resounding NO!! I'm so cool...read the piano solo page for the original story.
