What is "{ s1 }" for?

Eduardo Vieira
Hello users,
 
I am still struggling to learn the syntax for scores with lyrics. In the manual (as well as in other examples) I have seen this in the templates for vocal ensembles:
\context Lyrics = sopranos { s1 }
 
What does the { s1 } stand for? What is its use?
 
Best regards,
 
Eduardo

It's a spacer rest, see "2.16 Single staff polyphony" in the Tutorial.
The purpose here is to keep the context "alive" until the actual
lyrics begins.
