You are right, that's what I want to do, but AFAIK the \transpose
command apply the same interval-size to each note, keeping the
intervalic structure but changing the key. In your example 
"\transpose c d \MusicSet" would generate "d e fis g" while I wanted to keep the
original key and have "d e f g" generated instead (that's what I call
"modal" transposition).
