Online Sheet Music / MusicTeX
By Claus Kucher

In the 980202 MMDigest I tried to answer the question of Mike Haydon
asked in the 980131 MMDigest:

> Does anyone know of a Website with online downloadable
> public domain sheet music?

and mentioned the 'MusicTeX'-format.

Well, here is more information I found in the meantime coming from
'A-cappella FAQ' (frequently asked questions):

Q.7.5 Are there any music typesetting programs I can use?

 A program called MuTeX exists which enables users on most
 operating systems to typeset single-staff music and lyrics,
 but a better option for a cappella arrangers/composers is
 MusicTeX, a polyphonic system written by Daniel Taupin
(taupin@frups51.bitnet.nospam). The latest version is available
via anonymous FTP from:

 ... A TeX-and-music mailing list also exists: to join,
 send a request to:

 Be warned! The MusicTeX output looks nice, but is by no
 means easy to get! You have to type in everything as text,
 using sometimes convoluted commands, and many of these
 commands are in French. For those with MIDI keyboards,
 a MIDI-to-MusicTeX program can be obtained somewhere.
