Andrew, attached you’ll find a photograph of the score I’m trying to

David, apologies – I’m not very familiar with the difference between cue
and regular clefs, but at least visually, the clefs in the original
score look more like cues than regular ones to me. (Please see the
photograph as well.)
The difference is not a question of visuals but of semantics.  Cue clefs
are for _cues_, material from other instruments quoted as reference.
They don't override the regular clef.

It’s quite possible that the original score is simply incorrect in its
use of clefs here – the publisher seems to have been obscure in its day
I don't see much of a difference here, and of course you can reduce the
size of non-cue clefs further.  It just would be a bad idea to do so,
but then LilyPond will usually also make it possible to cater to bad

Okay, then semantically we’re definitely talking about a regular clef here, and I’m searching for a way to reduce the size of the clefs. I’ll see if I can figure out how to do that – sounds like a more tractable problem. (Probably not tonight, though.)

Thanks a lot for your help,
