A.6.1 Transcrizione di musica mensurale

Quando si trascrive musica mensurale, può essere utile inserire all’inizio del pezzo un incipit che indichi l’intonazione e il tempo originali. Le stanghette di battuta, a cui i musicisti di oggi sono abituati e che aiutano a riconoscere più velocemente gli schemi ritmici, durante l’epoca della musica mensurale non erano ancora state introdotte; infatti il metro cambiava spesso ogni poche note. Come compromesso, le stanghette vengono spesso inserite tra i righi invece che al loro interno.

A.6.2 Trascrizione di musica Gregoriana

Questo esempio mostra come realizzare una trascrizione moderna di musica gregoriana. La musica gregoriana non presenta suddivisione in misure né gambi; utilizza soltanto le teste della minima e della semiminima, e dei segni appositi che indicano pause di diversa lunghezza.

\include "gregorian.ly"

chant = \relative c' {
  \set Score.timing = ##f
  f4 a2 \divisioMinima
  g4 b a2 f2 \divisioMaior
  g4( f) f( g) a2 \finalis
}

verba = \lyricmode {
  Lo -- rem ip -- sum do -- lor sit a -- met
}

\score {
  \new Staff <<
    \new Voice = "melody" \chant
    \new Lyrics = "one" \lyricsto melody \verba
  >>
  \layout {
    \context {
      \Staff
      \remove "Time_signature_engraver"
      \remove "Bar_engraver"
      \override Stem #'transparent = ##t
      \override Flag #'transparent = ##t
