In reply to Yes Wena by Myer. I don't know, there is the words "lively" in the heading, would that be the "time signature"? The peace has one half bar line short one to the bar. Counting from one barline but not including the next barline there are four colons and one short mid bar line. This means 6 beats in a bar.
Dau guriad means two beats to the bar which confirms that the six beats are counted quickly as two groups. You did tell me to e-mail you but I find no e-mail address on the forum. I have attempted 1 top line and a to line in the base. It has taken me almost all day just to get that far!
I must admit I have enjoyed it so far but I hope to speed up. I have attempted to mark the script for your download. One other problem I am facing is the signal note at the start of each line of the so-fa script. The G. The t. F in C major is natural. It s called the "distinguishing tone".

The superscript d below it means that doh in C major is now fah in g major. The f. In both cases the uppercase letter is the new key. The lowercase letter is the the distinguishing tone. Modulations to a sharper key have the distinguishing tone written after the new key note. Modulations to a flatter key have the distinguishing tone written before the key note. The first note of the hymn is before the first barline. This is called an upbeat or anacrusis. The last bar of the first line only has 5 beats in it. The sixth beat is the first note on line two.
This is your "signal note". If it can be fitted into the line it is common to break a bar so that a new line of a hymn begins on a new line of the music. In addition it is common to place a double barline two thin lines inside a normal bar to indicate the end of the phrase. This is not a "real" barline. We can achieve this in MuseScore by selecting Measure Properties and changing the actual duration to 5 beats.

Add the double barline at the end of this bar. Change the next bar to 1 beat and, if you are using bar numbers, change the second bar to irregular so it is not counted as a bar number. Repeat barlines can also be inside real bars. The above description can also be used in instrumental music, especially where repeats or new sections are concerned.
Basic Tonic Solfa Concepts : Your easy guide for the best choral training and performance
A Chant, by the Salvation Army!! I am attempting to work in the Key of C, However this peace in A flat and the first part is in the form of a "Cant". Now i know that Myer is hard at work but I wonder if there is another that might like to have a go at this one for me. The Chores part is "Lively and Strong". I have attached a copy. Note lengths. I have had some help to start this peace off and as can be seen i have been able to add some lyrics. The Chant peace was easy, it was a matter of cut and past. However, it is obvious to me that the note lengths are not correct in the Chorus; Cytgan.
Although the peace is in the key of A I am working on it in C. I have attached the original So-fa file in my privies post but now with this post I am attaching my update in the hope of some help. Can anyone just get me started on this difficult peace. The bar sizes are different on from another. This is getting exiting now, this peace will have repeat and DC and that sort of thing that I have not used at all so far.
I have been thinking as to my Request above, asking if anyone could tell me the necessary settings for the So-fa fragment that I have attached. That would be very useful, however, it would be even greater if you can tell me how you came to that conclusion. After all that is what I am attempting to do, indeed that is slowly where I am getting to with all the help I have had from Myer.
If you're puzzled by the third bar don't count the anacrusis there is a faint bar line after four beats following the "yn" syllable. Without seeing the rest of the scan it's not clear whether the double bar line is at the end of the bar or after beat 3. If the next bar has four beats then bar four ends with a crotchet rest otherwise the notes after the double bar line are on beat 4.
No note or rhythm sign indicates a rest. In reply to It usually helps to scan and upload the whole page. In C this is G below the treble stave. In G this is D below the stave. The D. It makes musical sense to go back to the S and the second time leave out bars 5, 6 and 7.
Does that make the words flow properly? In reply to "Y tro cynt if" and "Yr ail by lasconic. In reply to Thanks Lasconic by Myer. I was going to give to 2 Welsh peace the human translation, yes, they are correct. Myer, you thought that part of the lyrics where nor contestant, but they are if I have understood the repeat correctly. The word "chlwyfo" is in the second line of bar 2. I am attaching the peace that I have don up to date for comments whether they be good or bad, but helpful.
As you know, it means go to the beginning. The correct abbreviation should be D. In the attached file i have used repeat signs and voltas to make the musical sense clearer. If you prefer to use the S sign remove the repeat signs, replace the D. Remove the numbers by right-clicking the voltas, choose Volta Properties and remove the numbers. I don't think it will play correctly though. The full stop tells you where the half beat comes. There is no note on the half beat so the first note is continued.
The comma tells you where the second or fourth quarter of the beat comes.

In this case the comma is after the half beat telling us that the second note is on the last quarter of the beat. The anacrusis is the same as beat one of bar 12 in the tutorial. The ": " indicates a rest because there is no pitch sign and no "-" to indicate continuing the previous note over the beat. You can get short score on sol2snd now. I find this thread useful but I wonder whether this post is too late. In reply to "Do you envisage an input by Xiffus. In reply to Thanks by Myer. It is my project and the site is fairly recent.

In reply to Please can somebody help me by betterlife1. Wow it's nice to see you Myer, on hear. I have done so Welsh hymns by now in staves. I have some So-fa tunes left, but I got the bug for it now. The last one I did our organist played it and found just 2 problem bars in the transportation to staves,.
I will look on my cloud and have some there that Sally and I didn't finish. All the books I have want to teach me how to sing not how to understand the So-fa. I have produced for myself a tool of the different Keys so that if it asked for an F flat for example I have been working in that key.
I find some problems with them, where there are no indications as to e. Let me know if you prefer PM or on this forum. Hy, Mayr. Below is a link of 2 address is for one peace. One is the So-fa. I had hoped to have got the rest of the peace from the So-Fa, to fill in the staves of the Alto. However it dose not explain many of the things that I need to know. Such as dots comas. In the book triplet is written eg, t,. So which is right?
Now the 15th bar in the Cytgan Chorus , there is a whole note covering the whole bar, and a pause is that what the book calls a pull in the bar just before the Chorus as shown in the Staves version. In reply to Hy, Mayr. Below is a link of by Wena Parry. And this is the MuseScore I have done. This the address of my cloud where I have put a peaces of So Fa music and the mscz. I have converted it to Staves in MuseScore, on lessening to it by a good musician I am tolled that the So fa sheet has errors in it.

Not really, it's more a music tutorial than a MuseScore tutorial. The aim of this work is for congregational singing. Thanks Myer. Attachment Size Achubwyd Fi. I have copied it and saved it as text in Notepad, so I can study it. All the best Myer. I want to start typing these in on the hope that such a plug-in comes.
Also, barlines and mid-bar lines. I used for a barlne and! Best wishes Myer. As for the Chant I will have to get to know the Key of "A flat". Thank you again. I envy those who have been brought up on tonic sol-fa, developing strong aural skills from an early age. There are some excellent pre-school music schemes incorporating it and these provide a marvellous start for a young musician. You are right the sol-fa system can be quite useful for learning music what people need are a practical context for using it in their lives.
I have been writing songs that use only two syllables to develop a sense of pitch relationships. These will suppliment the use of sol-fa, hopefully, especially at the infant, toddler and preschool stages, if I can get them published and recorded. Wow songs with just two syllables! That does sound interesting. I would really love to hear some. I might have a use for some of your songs I work with young children and music. Many thanks, Mike and Scott, for your comments! I had a quick look at your websites — both brimming with interest! I have experienced some success at teaching music to the developmentally young through tonic sol-fa.
As an experiment, I was teaching daily minute slots of Kodaly-based material to year olds who were poor readers. At that time early s , I was reading claims that use of the Kodaly music education system in Hungary improved literacy rates. Tonic solfa is particularly very useful for a society like ours and it has gained wide spread use in almost all churches, in schools and community choirs alike. I heard a respected jazz musician at IAJE say that he learned tunes in tonic solfa so that he could easily transpose them.
As music educators interested in both music technology and tonic sol fa, you may be interested in the ThumMusic System, which combines them in what appears to be a novel way. Hi, Great info. Can I have a lead on where to get the pre-school resources on learning tonic sol fa? Very intersting site. This attempts to present sol-fa teaching in a manner suited to the contemporary classroom. Instead of using a modulator, the teacher makes the hand-signs on a giant stave, which can be drawn on the board.
This is a brilliant way of combining sol-fa and staff-notation. I was born in Scotland. See all 3 brand new listings. Buy It Now. Add to cart. Be the first to write a review About this product.
