README.md

pipeband-music

Collection of lilypond files for a pipeband.

It concerns pipes and three types of drums (bass, tenor and snare (or side)). To this end, you will need the bagpipe.ly normally included by lilypond aswell as the lilydrum package (lyp-package / git).

For most tunes there are at least pipe and snare scores + a “full” score containing both. If I play standards/stock scores to a tune, it is not included. The same holds for tenor and bass scores.

Although this is my personal collection, quite a few tunes are used for my pipeband The Seaforth Highlanders of Holland Memorial Pipes and Drums.

How to compile a score

You can use the ./build script for this. It is a bash wrapper script for lilypond. Inspect this file first, to link lilydrum and review options you want.

With the -dno-strip-output-dir setting, files will be compiled in their respective folders.

How to add a new score

In ./templates you can find templates for the various permutations of instruments and their scores. These can be used as a starting point for a new score. You will need at least ./templates/config.ily to define the title, meter, time signature, etc
