Changing volta number text

Greetings -

I appreciate the help this list has been over many years.

I've gone slightly crazy on a couple of occasions, trying to figure out how
to change a volta number, either to a different number(s) or to text.

It looked like a snippet in the LSR :
Volta text markup using repeatCommands [0.10714]
was going to help, but it just confused me more.

I *did* find a thread in the archive :
change of volta number
which has gotten me close, but has an extra end-repeat before the first
volta ending bracket. I'm also not sure the format is the most recent.

I think it would be helpful to either have a snippet that shows how to
change a "normal" volta number setup (i.e., change the numbers and/or add
text), or to add something to the documentation.

Here's the best I could come up with. I'd appreciate some help getting rid
of that initial repeat sign.


\version "2.22.0"
\include "english.ly"

test = {
  \time 3/4
  \repeat volta 3
    a'4 b' c' |
    b'4 c' d' |
  \alternative {
      \set Score.repeatCommands = #'(end-repeat (volta "1., 3." ))
      e'4 f' g' |
      d'4 c' b' |
      \set Score.repeatCommands = #'(end-repeat (volta "4."))
      g'4 a' b' |

\score {


Thanks for your help,
