Framework to easily build LilyPond books.

Project description

Bertrand Bordage © 2011-2012

This application is a framework for LilyPond, an open-source music engraving software. Its goal is to provide an easy way to create large music books.









  1. Install the Requirements

  2. sudo pip install titelouze


This is just a regular Python library. Import everything using from titelouze import * and create LilyPond scores easily using our (uncomplete) list of instruments. Regular LilyPond contexts (bookparts, scores, staves, …) are also available.

To see a demonstration, launch ./ to generate a test file called and its PDF example.pdf.


There is not much to say about Titelouze, since this project is still a draft. But this is already quite powerful for such a simple library.

I strongly recommand you read ./ There is a lot of comments so it can be read as a tiny tutorial.


For sure : a Django application to easily include scores to the database of your Django project.

Maybe : a small user-friendly GUI.


Any idea would be welcome ! So don’t be shy and open an issue if you have spotted something odd.
