Here’s the score for Having Told the Hive the News. The piece will be premiered next week by the Huntsville Master Chorale directed by Patricia Ramirez-Hacker. I was invited to introduce the piece to the group in February and had such fun working with the singers. I can’t wait to hear how the work has developed. I will attend the concerts and participate in pre-concert discussions.

Holland, how were you able to extract only fragments of staves and reposition them? What software did you use?
I used LilyPond for the notation. It can output the score as a pdf, eps, png, etc. which I then rotated and arranged using Illustrator.
I haven’t heard of that before. I’m definitely looking into it. Thanks!
I highly recommend LilyPond: deep feature set, beautiful output, free and open-source. The steep learning curve is, of course, the biggest obstacle. Here’s a post about my first attempts with the program. Since then, Ben Lemon has put together these helpful video tutorials for beginners.
