2.9.4 Typesetting Gregorian chant

When typesetting a piece in Gregorian chant notation, the Vaticana_ligature_engraver automatically selects the proper note heads, so there is no need to explicitly set the note head style. Still, the note head style can be set, e.g., to vaticana.punctum to produce punctum neumes. Similarly, the Mensural_ligature_engraver automatically assembles mensural ligatures.
