    What axolotl01 said. Perhaps (also?) with double vertical bars (as in modern practice) or the old rectangular version.

    Yes. There is much 'early' music that is best written retaining the full breve. Modern notation practice is to retain the longer note values of 16th and 17th century music. Putting in two semibreves joined with a tie can too easily distract from where the real pulse (tactus) is.

    Supporting this motion – it's so much better to have the double whole note as an option rather than being forced to halve note values.
