Bonjour, Valentin,

Yes, here is my file.  I don't mind people seeing it (not my composition, and the composer is personally to me -- I simply Lilyponded his melody; words are public domain).  Melody *is* copyright, and for use, you need to contact me.

Copyright symbol goes in the \header section.  Currently, I have (c) in its place -- I would rather have © -- esthetics only.
