[MEI-L] multiRest in scores

Hi Don,

Weber, in his second symphony, uses multiple-measure rests in his
Menuetto at the end of both parts ("2" measures each time in the
complete orchestra - at least strings and woodwinds) - and this Menuetto
is very much "Haydn-like" - I suppose that "father Haydn" also used this
means somewhere...

So you are absolutely right concerning <multiRest>s in scores.

With best greetings,
P.S. Maybe there are more cases in Weber’s music, but I am not very
familiar with his music....

Maybe this means the MEI <multiRest> element should never be _used_ in scores, I'm not sure. And maybe this document considers the music for a work for a solo instrument to be a part, not a score? But here are a few places multibar rests occur in what I'd call scores:
> 	Beethoven: Piano Sonata no. 31, Op. 110, II (in music for a solo instrument)
> 	Kodaly: Hary Janos Suite (Universal ed.), I, m. 75 (in the score of an ensemble piece)
> 	Ravel: Gaspard de la Nuit (Durand ed.), Scarbo, mm. 30-31 (in music for a solo instrument)
> So the Beethoven and Ravel examples don't count if you consider those to be parts rather than scores. But there's no doubt the Kodaly score is a score!
