J.S. Bach prelude in F minor in Finale 2009

This is the second exercise for entering music in Sibelius using Alphabetic Note Entry. The previous exercise is Mary Had a Little Lamb and the next exercise is a chorale.

This exercise demonstrates how to:

  1. Create a pickup measure.
  2. Enter chords with several methods.
  3. Alter beats in measure without displaying time signature (add "irregular" measures with Alt+b.
  4. Hide a barline.

Follow these instructions to enter the music/lyrics for the first few bars of J.S. Bach's prelude in F minor, BWV 881 from Book II of the Well-Tempered Clavier. The final result should look similar to the image displayed to the right.
