Strange, I got a timeout and my post was created but my message not included.

Anyway, here's take 2.

I ended up sat next to a young trombonist in rehearsal this evening playing the Dvorak Stabat Mater. Unfortunately the tenor part is in Alto clef and he hasn't seen alto clef before.

While my usual advice would be "learn alto clef" as the concert is on Saturday I'm going to write it out for him.

Has anyone already written it out and might be able to share it? It would save me some time that I'm a bit short of at the moment.

Someone who has Finale or Sibelius could just copy it in--no skill needed--and change the clef mechanically.

Yes.  I'm pretty sure all the notation programs can change this easily.

For the one I use, NWC, I would type it in as it looked, select the notes, and hit Shift-Arrow (or something similar)  until it ended on the right line.  I do that with vocal music if bass clef and treble are in unison, e.g.
