Does a fermata go above or below a hairpin? I've found nothing on this in my sources.

I'd always place that under the hairpin, personally.

I think that only small articulations like an accent, tenuto, or staccato should come between a note-head and a fermata. Never hairpins, dynamics, slurs etc.

But why couldn't the hairpin be below the note?

The better the composer, the better the notation.

I 'm looking for similar cases of visual logic. First of all, it has to look good. Specially if there are no specific rules.

The only example I found in Gould has the fermata above the staff and the hairpin below.

the only times a hairpin would go above a staff is either in vocal music, or in a score where two instruments share a staff and they have different dynamics.

With the former, the fermata goes nearer the note, the hairpin further.
And with the latter, it would be the exact same thing.

A more or less safe rule of thumb when dealing with "long" musical expressions (tuplet brackets, hairpins, slurs), the longer item goes the highest/furthest from the note.

An aside:
And technically, this would apply as well when adding articulations to a note, since a fermata "lengthens" the duration of the note (ie: the "longest" element in that case) it goes furthest from the note in the hierarchy of articulations.


Finale (started with ver. 3.0) using 2012 (2014 has been shelved for its lack of support for older Garritan libraries) under Windows 8.1
basically ALL Garritan libraries, plus XSample Chamber Ensemble.

That was dumb of me not to specify that this is a choral example. So you're all suggesting that in this example, the fermata should appear above the note first, and then the hairpin above the fermata, right? Thanks, all.
