nice that there are some people who use this... I have a totally new idea in mind, which is only to put the incipit as a markup into the instruments name. That is, you write an identifier like incipitcantus which looks like:

        \set Staff.instrumentName="Supranus "
        \override NoteHead   #'style = #'neomensural
        \override Rest #'style = #'neomensural
        \override Staff.TimeSignature #'style = #'neomensural
        \clef "petrucci-c1"
        \key f \major
        \time 2/2
        r\longa r \[f'\breve g' a' \]
    \layout {
        \context {\Voice
            \remove Ligature_bracket_engraver
            \consists Mensural_ligature_engraver

and put it into the Staff.instrumentName : \set Staff.instrumentName=\incipitcantus  inside the \new Staff declaration. I will try to update the template, but had some errors with text still: I didn't figure out if it is possible to add text to the incipit.
If you don't understand this, just ask me again, I got the hint by Alvaro Nanches, I think he is ok if I send his file to you. You will have to remember to manually set the lenght of the indent for the first line of the music to the appropriate lenght. The line-width you will also have to change to your music.

Here you are.

I would like to fix other things as well (i.e. the missing system start delimiter after the incipit!!), maybe someone could give me a hint?

Thanks for the interest!  Could you send me an entire new
template, with these changes (and whatever else you'd like to
change) ?  That would be easiest for me.

I'm quite new to lilypond and it took me some hours to find out why lyrics don't work as expected when using the template for ancient
music transcription (D.5.1).

Referring to some newsgroup posts (,, I propose to update this template to save others from investing the same amount of time again.

Take the "bassusLyrics" out from the StaffGroup.

Insert this sequence in the layout section:

    \context { \Lyrics \consists "Bar_engraver" }

    \context { \StaffGroup \consists
"Separating_line_group_engraver" }

    \context { \Lyrics \override BarLine #'transparent = ##t }

Thanks in advance!

BTW, I'm still struggling with other ancient music issues ... (,
