With another person trying to figure out what you wanted here:

None of those solutions involve programming, and they are easily
constructed with the knowledge in the LM.  If you cannot, or will
not, describe what you actually want, it's very difficult to help
you.

I think what Graham's trying to say (but he has difficulty formulating these kinds of things) is this:
```\version "2.11.65"

notes = { c d e f g a h c }

TrptOne = { \key d \major \transpose c d \relative c'' { \notes } }
```
TrptTwo = { \key d \major \transpose d a, { \transpose c d \relative c'' { \notes } } }
```
\score {
<<
\relative c'' \notes
\TrptOne
\TrptTwo
>>
}

```
I find it interesting that Graham can't help people--he feels the need to teach them. Sometimes people don't understand how the functions in lilypond work. And then we have the quarterly, "Graham, stop being an ass to the newbies" email.
