Slurs with 2 curves, and ornaments

• Sep 11, 2020 - 16:21

I am trying to notate an unmeasured prelude (harpsichord) of Louis Couperin, see attached pdf for the L'oiseau Lyre edition. The unmeasured notes can be done, but I am stuck with the slurs which do not go only in one direction, but are very elegant in two directions (see last bass-notes in first system). Is there some solution for this?

Also I cannot find the correct ornaments, see second note in second system, but especially the two cross-like ornaments further in the second system. I have checked the master palette, but I did not find them. Is there a way to add them myself?

You also solved the problem of the slur on the last note first system, in my version it continued to the next system, but by adding a grace not after the main note, and making it nog=t visible, there is an endpoint for this one also, clever, and again thanks!

In this kind of music there are an awful lot of different ornaments, this one is comparable to the modern mordent, so that one can be used, but i like to make the look as much as possible to the originals. That playback is not affected is of no importance to me, will try as images.
Thanks again!
