Modello per notazione antica – trascrizione moderna di musica gregoriana

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

Score for diatonic accordion

A template to write a score for a diatonic accordion.

- There is a horizontal staff indicating if the accordion must be pushed (thick line) or pulled (thin line)

- There is a small rhythmic staff with lyrics that describes the bass buttons to press. The bar lines are made from gridlines

- The tabulator staff for diatonic accordions shows the geographic position of the buttons and not (as for every other instrument) the pitch of the notes; the keys on the melody-side of the accordion are placed in three columns and about 12 rows

In the tabulator staff notation the outermost column is described with notes between lines, the innermost column is described with notes between lines and a cross as accidental, and the middle column is described with notes on a line, whereby the row in the middle is represented on the middle line in the staff.

Some words to transpose piano notes to the diatonic accordion:

1. Every diatonic accordion is built for some keys only (for example, for the keys of C major and F major), so it is important to transpose a piano melody to match one of these keys. Transpose the source code, not only the output because this code is required later on to translate it once more to the tabulator staff. This can be done with the command displayLilyMusic.

2. You have to alternate the push- and pull-direction of the accordion regularly. If the player has a too long part to pull the accordion gets broken. On the other hand, some harmonies are only available in one direction. Considering this, decide which parts of the melody are the push-parts and which the pull-parts.

3. For each pull- or push-part translate the piano notes to the according tabulature representation.

    % The beam between 8th-notes is used to draw the push-line
    %How to fast write the push-lines:
    %  1. write repeatedly 'c c c c c c c c |' for the whole length of the song
    %  2. uncomment the line \NoNoteHead
    %  3. compile
    %  4. Mark the positions on which push/pull changes.
    %     In the score-picture click on the position
    %        the push- or pull-part starts
    %           (on the noteHead, the cursor will change to a hand-icon).
    %     The cursor in the source code will jump just at this position.
    %   a) If a push-part starts there, replace the 'c' by an 'e['
    %   b) If a pull-part starts there, replace the 'c' by an 's'
    %  5. Switch into 'overwrite-mode' by pressing the 'ins' key.
    %  6. For the pull-parts overwrite the 'c' with 's'
    %  7. For every push-part replace the last 'c' with 'e]'
    %        8. Switch into 'insert-mode' again
    %  9. At last it should look like e.g.
    %        (s s e[ c | c c c c c c c c | c c c c c c e] s s)
    % 10. re-enable the line \NoNoteHead
    \autoBeamOff
    \ZeroBeam

Modello per quartetto d’archi con parti separate

Il frammento di codice del “Modello per quartetto d’archi” crea un bel quartetto, ma cosa fare se si ha bisogno di creare le singole parti? Questo nuovo modello mostra come usare la funzionalità \tag per dividere facilmente un pezzo in parti staccate.

Occorre dividere questo modello in file separati; i nomi dei file sono indicati nei commenti all’inizio di ogni file. piece.ly contiene tutte le definizioni musicali. Gli altri file – score.ly, vn1.ly, vn2.ly, vla.ly e vlc.ly – creano ciascuna parte.

Modello per gruppo vocale con riduzione per pianoforte automatica

Questo modello aggiunge una riduzione automatica per pianoforte alla tipica partitura vocale SATB illustrata in “Modello per complesso vocale”. Si dimostra così uno dei punti di forza di LilyPond – è possibile usare una definizione musicale più di una volta. Qualsiasi modifica venga fatta alle note delle voci (ad esempio, tenorMusic) verrà applicata anche alla riduzione per pianoforte.

Ecco una tipica partitura corale a quattro parti, SATB. Se il complesso è più ampio, è spesso comodo scrivere gli elementi comuni in un’unica sezione, che verrà poi inclusa in tutte le parti. Ad esempio, l’indicazione di tempo e l’armatura di chiave sono quasi sempre le stesse per tutte le parti. Come nel modello dell’“Inno”, le quattro voci sono ripartite in due soli righi.
