Greetings everybody,

Hi Valentin

Wow!  This is a major work!  It must be the largest LilyPond score
ever!  I compiled the full score last night to peruse, and it looks
awesome.   The pdf file is 6.65 Mb!

I haven't yet been able to look at it musically, but I thought I'd let you
know that it can be downloaded easily from your git site (although
you need to be git-aware to do this), and compiled under Vista.

I had to change only the \includes in from
\include "./foo/"   to  \include "foo/"

but otherwise it worked first time out of the box.  There are a few
warnings, mainly about beam slopes and between-system-padding,
nothing serious.

It took quite a time to compile on my 2Gb laptop, partly because I
inadvertently started two compiles of the full score simultaneously (I now realise!), which caused quite a bit of paging, as you might
imagine.  It should compile much faster on a 4Gb machine, or one
at a time!

Success! The full score compiled in 3 hours, 6 minutes. Ubuntu 8.04, 2GB RAM, and some kind of Intel dual-core processor. It's a beautiful score, Valentin. Do you think this work would be appropriate for college students to perform? We have a pretty decent bunch of singers here and they do a production every year. Maybe I'll pitch it to the director. They like comedies.

Congrats again and thanks for sharing with us. :)
