Thanks to those who offered advice last week! I almost got to the point of
incorporating lily into Sunday's PPT, but it was not quite good enough
this time. 

Trevor's snippets were very useful: colouring any sort of text anywhere on
the page is a doddle, but colouring the background is (as he says) messy.

Provided I stay within the vertical confines of the five stave lines I can
add colour without anything else moving. But as soon as I extend the
colour to include notes, clef and text above and below the stave, lily
expands the inter-system 'white' space, giving a pyjama-stripe effect and
pushing the music onto extra pages.

The attached .ly file shows where I got to. Clearly, for a single screen
refrain, I can (and did) cut and paste the three stripes into a single jpg
using gimp. But for a full-length worship song that would be rather

If anyone can offer further advice for controlling the inter-system space
generation (or any other suggestions), I would be most grateful!
