I guess it's mostly a matter of getting used to it. However, you
can do something like

sopranoBlockI = {c d e f | g a d b}
altoBlockI = { a b c d | a b c d }
\ = { d e f g }

  \context Voice = soprano {\sopranoBlockI sopranoBlockII ... }
  \context Voice = alto {\altoBlockI altoBlockII ... }

You might also want to take a look at the preprocessor called "sly"
that has been announced on the mailing list some year ago.

Hi all,

I'm in the process of switching more and more of my typesetting jobs from Mup to Lilypond, but I have some trouble getting used to the way Lilypond wants me to write every full staff and then combine them in a score.

I would rather write a few measures for every staff and then the next few measures, etc. so that the different voices are close together in the source file.

Is it possible to start a context with notes and later write other notes to that context? I didn't get it right so far. E.g.

\context Voice="soprano" { c d e f | g a d b}
\context Voice="alto" { a b c d | a b c d }
and then later
\context Voice="soprano" { d e f g } % etc.

TIA for any help.

best regards,
Wilbert Berendsen
