All of these things mentioned above make me wonder: did the programmers consult composers while designing the program?    :o

Or, dudes, did they just consult the local garage band down the street?   8)

Actually, the work is going much, much smoother with Sibelius than it went back when I was using Finale (when I first composed the Overture).  Especially with the benefit of Luke's experience, which is a great help in my conquering the learning curve.

I may just wind up re-doing the entirety of what I've already composed of the ballet, in Sibelius.  But, after finishing the Overture as an ├ętude, of course;  my task is to compose to the end of the ballet, first.

No, Sibelius is a fine tool - but notating music properly, is a complex business, and so that tool has to be pretty powerful and flexible to cope with it all. Once one is used to it, there's not much it can't do. Though they refuse to consider making irrational time signatures possible, apparently. It seems they don't believe such things exist, even though zillions of examples are out there in print!

However, even something like this can be got-around, once one knows how.

Just heard from Paul Cienniwa that he intends to play my Three Short Pieces, Opus 34 (Canzona Semplice, O Beauteous Heavenly Light, Fancy on Psalm 80 from the Scottish Psalter) for the Prelude to the 11/9 service.

Just make sure he does it on prepared piano.

Bit of nostalgia, the first piece of mine which then-director at St Paul's, Mark Engelhardt, had the choir sing, an Alleluia in A-flat which I wrote in dedication to my wonderful mom-in-law, Irina Pisarenko:
