I need to put a lot of syllables under one note. I'm trying to create a psalm chant with a reciting note at the beginning. Lyric input is getting thoroughly confused but I can't change the score spacing- or can I. Come on you experts.
I think you've gotten all the right advice but I'm curious about how this is supposed to appear. Anything like the attached picture (which utilizes Jay's concept)? If not, can you post or link to an example of what you're referring to from another piece of music?
