Ottava alta (i.e. 8va) over long distances in the lower staff in bass clef is unidiomatic for piano notation. You'd be much better served by using a treble clef, then switching back to bass clef at m. 9, beat 3:

Also, is the omission of the cello doubling in m. 10-17 intentional?

Definitely the Secret one - just deleted now. Had to delete puppet miyamoto and friends shortly after Dropbox stopped supporting Public folders, sadly.

For your given medium (i.e. academia), I recommend creating excerpts from scratch to fit your specific needs. You are welcome to use any of my materials, but just know it may not be right for the application. The problem is that anything made 2012 or earlier suffers from poor engraving quality (while mostly accurate to the source), while anything made 2014 and beyond are idiomatically interpreted and optimized for piano, making them unsuitable as scholarly reference material.

M. 17-18 -- The lower staff's accidentals don't match those chosen for the upper staff. Use Db and Ab, instead of C# and G# (reason: b2 chord root = neopolitan).

Also, just be aware that you have the ability to still use "8vb" instead of "8va" as the default symbol for ottava. Makemusic in their infinite wisdom decided that they'd try to correct a century's worth of copyist shorthands by burying the 8vb symbol in a list of sub-menus hoping to phase out the etymologically inaccurate expression "8vb". Here's where it is:

I'll concede on the fonts and text block layouts (esp. considering that Century Schoolbook is not a standard stock Windows font, unless you have MS Office installed). Thanks for the compliments, and I hope this will suffice.

Camtasia Studio 9 -- used v8 for my website promo video last year. Workflow is really easy to pick up on.

Re-transcribe m. 1-4.

Delete all key changes -- just let modal mixtures and secondary dominants do their magic.

M. 15 -- Spell as E, not Fb
M. 16; m. 25-32 -- Spell as F#, not Gb

Re-transcribe the lower voice in m. 16, beat 2.5. It's a C, not a D.

If you're going to beam 8ths in groups of 4, don't use ties within the group -- just unbeam into groups of 2, or use a quarter note (note: be consistent).

Given the soundtrack's Impressionistic influences, I thought it'd be fun to experiment what a "Gymnopedie"-ed version of this song would look like:

Personally, I'm not a fan of this style of cross-staving (it *screams* antiquated), but I think this little experiment definitely shows the possibilities you could take in regards to both the engraving (voices/layers, beaming, visual aesthetics) and arrangement (dynamics, pedaling, phrasing) of this song.

Operation Overcome Laziness: Success.

Sheet Status: Updated.

Long-term prognosis: Unsustainable.
