Say, you all are very friendly!  I didn't expect such enthusiastic help!
I started asking questions on Music Stack Exchange and they were giving me such a hard time that I was getting a bit discouraged.

I am a regular user of Gregorio, and I know Gregorian Chant pretty well, but I am learning music theory for modern nation as I go.  At the moment I am creating a childrens' hymnal for Eucharistic Crusaders - I have an old booklet hand-written by nuns and am using Frescobaldi with Lilypond to typeset everything.  I'm not completely new to modern notation, but I never learned it as a child (we didn't study that in the hills where I'm from).

So as I proceed with this little booklet, I'm sure to have other questions that I can't resolve by googling or searching the docs.  I will be pleased to use the list!  Thanks for being so nice!

I am a programmer, and never in the world would I have used brackets and
parenthesis like that!
It's better not to think of them as brackets and parentheses, because they are not, they are symbols indicating the start and end points of beams and slurs.  Have a look at

for an overview.
