Hi Matteo,

as I've already expressed privately I think this is a great project - thank you for following up on my ideas. If I get the README right this will in fact overcome several limitations of my so-far manual approach. I hope we'll be able to make that generally available in the most straight-forward manner.

However, your example files don't compile with LilyPond 2.19. (the oldest 2.19 I can test is 2.19.6, so I don't exactly know where it breaks). 2.18.2 works fine but 2.19.x results in


/home/uliska/git/openlilylib/gridly/example/multi-file/../../grid-templates.ily:31:44: error: syntax error, unexpected MUSIC_FUNCTION, expecting \sequential or \simultaneous or << or '{'

\new Lyrics \lyricsto "soprano"

\gridGetLyrics "soprano" $segments

and then of course numerous follow-up errors.

Can anyone tell me (or Matteo) if there have been any significant changes in lyrics handling that may cause this?

Hi all!

I just pushed to github Gridly, a small LIlyPond library that (partly) implements the segmented grid approach described by Urs Liska in his blog post (, including some of the ideas proposed by Jan-Peter Voigt in his blog post ( .

Basically this library allows to define and populate a grid with music without resorting to a preprocessing of the input files with external scripts. It still is in early development, however I find it already pretty usable. If you are interested, take a look at the code on :-)
