I hope you have a good reason to deviate from standard music typesetting
practice. As far as I can see, it's hard-coded into LilyPond to not typeset
the opening repeat at the beginning of a piece, but if there is a general
need for such an option, it should be easy to make this configurable.

I have the same problem. I don't know if lilypond can do that, but I use the following cheap trick:


{
\time 4/4


\partial 128 s128 % create an empty tiny partial measure before the repeat

\repeat volta 2
{
c''2
c''
}
}


which works form me. I'd recommend you to use raggedright=##t in the layout for a single bar score though.

All,

If I have a file with this:

{
\time 4/4

\repeat volta 2
{
c''2
c''
}
}


I get a single measure and a close repeat at the end of it. How do I get LilyPond to put the openning repeat in there as well? I tried this:

{
\time 4/4
\bar "|:"

\repeat volta 2
{
c''2
c''
}
}

but that puts the time signature inside the repeat.  I tried moving the

\bar to various places but nothing would put it where I want it. I would like to have the symbols in this order:

1.  Clef
2.  Time signature
3.  Open repeat
4.  The rest of the music.
