Can you do the same with Handel's For unto us a child is born or
Mozart's Kyrie from Requiem d-moll? ;)

Personally i find typing Lily input a bit cumbersome.  I mean, the
keys used are scattered all over the keyboard (and shift is frequently
needed); i've been thinking about devising a set of shortcuts to ease
this, but now i'm too busy with Lily itself... I have some draft
though, maybe it would be useful for Frescobaldi?
