The answer is 5.5mm

Never before had I realised the importance of pre-determining my score orientation and stave size…I didn’t know that it’s really a very sensible thing to do BEFORE you start scoring.

And so now, after literally WEEKS of my life and my sanity have been poured into getting this score looking vaguely sensible, I have discovered that the optimum stave size for A4 orientation is: 5.5mm.

Aside from a chorus of trumpet fanfares and a few choralĀ ‘Hallelujahs!’ from Handel’s ‘Messiah’ to accompany this discovery, I end this post.

I do feel rightly proud of this learning; I will NEVER make this mistake again if I want to retain a full head of hair and stop buying gin.
