Exemples de notation ancienne – transcription moderne de musique grégorienne

Voici comment vous pourriez transcrire du grégorien. Pour mémoire, il n’y a en grégorien ni découpage en mesure, ni hampe ; seules sont utilisées des têtes de note blanches ou noires, ainsi que des signes spécifiques permettant d’indiquer des silences de différentes durées.

Ce canevas illustre l’utilisation de contextes StaffGroup pour regrouper les instruments selon leur famille, imbriqués dans un GrandStaff, ainsi que le recours à la fonction \transpose pour les instruments transpositeurs. Dans tous les identificateurs, la musique est stockée en ut.

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

Quatuor à cordes, avec parties séparées

Grâce à ce canevas, vous pouvez obtenir une partition d’excellente facture pour quatuor à cordes mais aussi, si le besoin s’en faisait sentir, une partie séparée par instrument. Par ailleurs, cet exemple illustre l’utilisation de la fonction \tag dans le but d’extraire des parties séparées.

Il vous faudra découper ce canevas en plusieurs fichiers séparés ; leur nom respectif est indiqué en commentaire : ‘piece.ly’ comporte tout ce qui a trait à la musique, les autres fichiers – ‘score.ly’, ‘vn1.ly’, ‘vn2.ly’, ‘vla.ly’ et ‘vlc.ly’ – vous permettront d’obtenir les parties selon le pupitre.
