GS 2010 Article 147 – SCBP: Overleaf Notation

1.         Material

Letter from Elora (8.3.J.1)

2.         Observation

The church of Elora states that although it is beneficial to have the music for the first stanza on the overleaf, it does cause confusion because it is not immediately evident that the stanza with the music is not necessarily the first stanza of the Psalm (e.g. stanza 7 of Ps 18). This could be clarified by adding the word “continued” at the top of the page.

3.         Consideration

The SCBP addresses this on page 11 of their report: visual cues are provided to indicate overleaf notation stanzas.

4.         Recommendation

That Synod decide that Elora’s concern has been addressed.
