I love to play the tin whistle and around 2012 I was looking for some sheet music. There are a lot of good resources out there but the one thing I have never found was a collection which was free (as in freedom) and usable for printing. And if something does not exist why not try and create it yourself?
At this point I discovered Lilypond a wonderful project for music engraving. The best part is that it has support for embedding its scores in LaTeX files so it is possible to get complex layouts without a big hassle. As a programmer I instantly liked the approach because I did not need a big editor but could just write text files which I then could manage with something like git.
Main development happens at https://code.vanwa.ch/sebastian/sing-alongs.
Take a look at the command list in the makefile to see what you need for building.
The makefile defines multiple targets:
- pdfs: builds all songs as single pdfs (without lyrics for now)
- midis: builds the midi file for each song
- opus: converts the midi files into opus files
- book: concatenates the songs (with lyrics) to a songbook
- booklet: converts the songbook to a booklet fit for double sided flip printing
To build all just run
make and it takes care of everything.
I am still not quite clear on how this works. My understanding is that all these songs already are in the public domain and there is no need to explicitly set a license.
All copyrights that could arise from other sides (makefile or whatever) are waived under CC0.
