I have the edition of Satie's Gnossienne no. 1 arranged by Roland Dyens (part of his collection 'Mes arrangements à l'amiable', published by Lemoine). The score is very well marked and there are good and clear explanations of the various notation markings at the front of the collection. But there's one that isn't spelled out that I haven't seen before and can't work out.
Where the time signature changes to 6/4 for the fourth bar only, 'sif' is written in. See below. Is this just an alert to warn the unsuspecting that the time signature has changed? Or something else? I suspect that it's a French abbreviation, but can't for the life of me work out what it might be for.
Does anyone know what it might be? Thanks.
