Two Verses Same Line

Aaron Fenker
I’ve been searching for an answer to this problem. I know it’s possible to put two verses on the same line of music. This would be for liturgical responses. I’ve found a booklet (PDF) that’s music was done in lilypond with latex. I want to know how to do this. I’ve attached a screenshot. Any help would be great! Thanks.

I'm not quite sure what you mean...
Do you want two objects like your screenshot placed on a line?
Or do you want to reproduce what is in the screenshot?

If the latter, you realise that you can put
\set stanza = "℣." Ky -- ri -- e e -- le -- i -- son. \set stanza = "℟." Ky -- ri -- e e -- le -- i -- son.
before any lyric syllable wherever it occurs (and stanza
can be any old \markup you like).

Cheers,
David.

That worked. I didn't know you could "set stanza" multiple times. Thanks!

For LilyPond through LaTeX, I know 3 solutions:

- lilypond-book invocation, documented in the Lily docs

- Lyx has a LilyPond plug-in that's rather easy to use, but not recommended for massive scores (as a matter of fact it should be perfect for the "snippet" format you seem to be after)

- jperon has implemented a LyLuaTex hack, available from GitHub: https://github.com/jperon/lyluatex/

Hope this helps,
Jo'
