I am using beamer to create a slideshow for a presentation I'm giving. I have the luxury of two screens, so I'm taking advantage of Beamer's 'show notes on second screen' option, so that I can glance down at my computer screen to see what I need to say. However, I want the notes to be easily readable at a glance, and the default linespacing in Beamer's notes impedes that. How do I change the linespacing of the notes universally (obviously without changing anything else, if possible)? I'd rather not have to type something extra every time I insert a new note.

Here is a MWE:

\documentclass[aspectratio=169, t]{beamer}
\setbeameroption{show notes}
\setbeameroption{show notes on second screen=left}
\setbeamerfont{note page}{size=\large}


Here is some text to go on the slide that will be seen by the audience.
\note<1>{Here is some text to go in the notes that will only be seen by me. I've made sure that there is enough text here so that it will go over several lines. This is the paragraph of text that I would like to have larger line spacing---say, double spacing.}


Here's what that looks like when I compile it (using pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.18 (TeX Live 2017/Debian), and Beamer v3.50):
