I would appreciate any suggestions for the above issues. Or comments on how I am putting together the whole score.

I do a load of brass (and concert) band stuff. And because I play trombone I'm sensitive to transposition issues. So I always store my parts in variables IN CONCERT PITCH.

When copying from a part, let's say it's a treble-clef trombone part, I always wrap it in "\transpose c' bf {}". Then if I want to print a treble-clef part I wrap the variable in "\transpose bf c' {}". And while it may seem redundant, when printing a bass-clef part I always wrap it in "\transpose c c {}".

And I always print parts using "\clef treble_8" or whatever as appropriate.

It means that I have no problem wondering what pitch the original part was in - my variables are always concert. I can print it out for eg Sop, Repiano or ordinary cornet. I can print trombone parts in bass or treble clef. I can shift between Eb, EEb, Bb, BBb basses. Whatever.

If the conductor wants the score all in the same transposition, or in the instrument's transposition ...

It's just knowing the internal representation is *always* concert just makes my mental gymnastics much simpler.
