I have a question about the last volta(ultima volta, last ending bracket). When should it be closed and when should it be open?
I have found a document about that topic, which can be found here on page 20: https://www.icking-music-archive.org/lists/sottisier/notation.pdf
(f) Endings must be bracketed. When a second oocurs in the middle of a pice, the bracket should extend for a measure or two and then end without the closing stroke. When the second ending occurs at the end of a piece or section, the bracket must closed.
Also, I have found this site (https://ultimatemusictheory.com/volta-brackets/) in which the last volta is never closed, even if the last volta includes a double-bar line.
That's where I'm confused, because if a sections ends, the volta should too, right?
Then I found a quote from Elaine Gould from the book "Behind Bars", where she writes:
At the end of a piece, to look more final, run a second-time bar to the end and (provided it is shorter than a whole system) and close it parallel to the final double barline.
Can someone explain me, when the last volta has to be closed and when not?
Here I have an accordion arrangement of the song "Riptide" from Vance Joy, where I use some voltas in differen situations. Which ones are correct and where do I have to do some corrections with the voltas?
