Sung voices follow the related staff note velocities.
In the same way, they follow the score tempo changes.
 
You then just have to manage sung voices as you do for instrumental staves.

Velocity as implemented by MA/HA and VS (and most low-end MIDI synths such as those built-into PC sound cards) only affect the volume of an entire note. The Crescendo and Descrescendo Symbols available in MA and HA work by applying a changing percentage to the existing Velocities. For instance, if the Velocities of the notes within the range of a Crescendo symbol averaged 64, and the Crescendo mark itself was set to increase from 50% at its start to 100% at its end (the default), then the velocities of the notes at the start of the range would be played as if they were averaging 32, and increasing linearly across the range until the end where they average 64.
 
Note, however, that the velocity of a given note remains constant throughout that note, even in the presence of a Crescendo or Decrescendo. If you have one part with a double whole note covering two measures (4¤4 time), and while that note is held, other parts have counter-harmonies singing quarter or even eighth or sixteenth notes, or combinations thereof, those other parts would increase (or decrease in the case of Decrescendo) in volume, but the double whole note would not. It would retain the velocity it has at its beginning. Also, each of the individual notes of the other parts would sound a little louder or softer (for Crescendo or Decrescendo) than the immediately-preceeding note of the same part, but the individual notes themselves would not increase nor decrease in volume during their own durations.
 
If you want to produce that effect, the only way at present is with the Volume Curve. See the Tutorial on “Parameter Curves” for more information and an example: “http://www.myriad-online.com/video/english/gbcurves.htm” (note: be sure you have a recent version of the Myriad Music Web Plugin installed before you go to this link).
 
Through my experimentation, I have determined that VS actually does respond to most of the Parameter Curves, which means that with clever use of this feature, you can have VS voices change in tonality (Bass, Treble) and other effects as well as in volume, even within a single note! You could use Panning, for instance, to give the impression of the singer moving around on the stage while singing. You could use Chorus Power to give the effect of one singer in a group starting a note, and then other singers in a chorus joining in in unison as the note continues, expanding the sound. Since real human singer voices tend to change in tonality when they get louder or softer, you can partly simulate that effect by, for instance, reducing Treble (and perhaps increasing Bass) whenever you reduce Volume, and increasing Treble whenever you increase Volume. By clever use of Frequency curves, you can have the singers use vibrato exactly when and how you want it (well, within the limits of the triangle waveforms that Parameter Curves are currently limited to [Hey, Guillions! Add Beziér spline curve functionality to the next major version!]), and even couple the vibrato with changes in Volume and Treble to make it more realistic (as well as having the vibrato peak at the note’s pitch as it should be instead of being centered around it as MA/HA and VS and nearly all other electronic music vibrato actually does — see the thread on vibrato awhile back for more details on this subject).

As you discovered, the programs have many functional features that require experimentation to fully exploit. Now I know (thanks to you) that VS responds to many other parameters. I will try them more often.
