Jean-Charles Malahieude:
On my way to typeset a mass by Monteverdi, I'm blocked with some
ligatures (see
for examples)

You seem to equate ligatures with legato, I'd be interested to hear
if you have any references to that.

There are plenty of them in,_Claudio%29#IMSLP37009

You'll find one example herewith (page 6 of the full pdf, stamped 4 of the Cantus part).

I can code the first one in its 8th image like this:

    << \tag #'Urtext { \[ d1 e1*3/4 \] }
       \tag #'Modern { d1 e2. } >> f4 g1

but don't find any way to get the E in black.

This is what I did one in a time (\version "2.6.5"):

     g1 \[ d \melisma
           % this is a fake minor calor, together with the moved b4
           \once \override TextScript #'extra-offset = #'( 0.9 . -1.8)
           a'1*3/4^\markup{ \beam #0.9 #0 #0.5 }

(found near the end of [1]).
The result was on page 7 (between 64 and 65) in [2].

This "Dominus" in the bass part is exactly what I'm looking for.

I'll try that tomorrow and let you know.
