Hi everyone,

I'm currently doing some brass band engraving (taking some old scores and putting them into Sibelius). I'm just wondering if anyone could explain two things for me:

 - There is "SH" written on the tenor horn part a few times, what does this mean?

- What does the the funny 'H' symbol mean,  with a horizontal line at the top of it? Hope that makes sense....

Cheers in advance,

Not sure about this as I can't envisage what you are referring to (a photo might help). The only thing I can think of is that the  first horn part is sometimes referred to as "Solo Horn" then 2 and 3 become 1 and 2.

Could be wrong (again :( :( :()



Trombone means big trumpet-does that mean it is louder?

Yeah, a photo would help. The answer to these questions doesn't spring immediately to mind for me either.

H-, but with the bar connected to the H?

According to http://www.dolmetsch.com/musicalsymbols.htm, that means "hauptstimme, (German) principal part or voice" (which would be in keeping with Stewbones' "Solo Horn" idea).
