## Tempo marking in score

 From: Michiel Lange Subject: Tempo marking in score Date: Sun, 20 Feb 2005 16:47:10 +0100 User-agent: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.8 (Windows/20040913)

To show the tempo in a piece I have added the \tempo command in a ChoirStaff like this:
```
<<
\context ChoirStaff<<
\context Staff = women <<
\key ges \major \clef violin
\set Staff.midiInstrument="choir aahs"
\context Voice= sop
{
\tempo 4=72
\relative c''
{
\voiceOne << \sopm >>
}
}
\context Voice=alt
{
\relative c''
{
\voiceTwo << \altm >>
}
}
>>

```
The result is not really what I would like as you can see in http://minas-2.demon.nl/~michiel/blessyou.preview.pdf
```
```
I would think (but that's just me I guess) that a \tempo should be in the header of the piece (?) this did not seem to work though... (the header really disappeared completely)
```
This header is not valid for example:
{
texidoc = "The Lord bless you and keep you"
title = "The Lord bless you and keep you."
subtitle = "(De Heer zal u behoeden)"
poet = "Ned tekst: Frits Ham"
composer= "John Rutter"
\tempo 4=72
}

How can I prevent the rest and the tempo mark to collapse?
