This is for sight-singing fun; I'll hand out a song sheet, we'll spend 2 or 3 minutes on this, once through, then sing something else.

So, for the basses who take the profound option, it would be nice if there was a slur symbol right where their eyes are focused

If it can't be done, we'll live with it...

It can be done, as David K. wrote. However, I want to say that there are good reasons why this isn’t normally done and this is a case where LilyPond’s default behaviour shouldn’t be overridden unless one has good reasons to break the rule in a special instance. “I like it better that way” and “That’s what I’m used to” are (almost) never good reasons.

Also, doing everything to accommodate inexperienced sight-readers can often lead to bad conclusions.

Best, Simon
