Mup macros, so that any music that is common

of the themes only had to be entered once.
Woodland Echoes and
Two relaxing pieces in similar style that make heavy use of Mup macros.
Prelude - a
Baroque-style piece for English horn, French horn,
organ, violin, viola, and continuo. Includes
extensive use of macros to demonstrate how Mup can be used to easily generate

Other Mup music sites
There are additional Mup songs available from
The Werner Icking Music Archive
includes some Mup songs, specifically:
J. Molinet: Tart ara mon cueur
A semi barless typesetting of an early 16th century French chanson.
S. de Vivanco: Cum ieiunatis
A 5-part early 17th century Latin motet making use of MUP transposition for
printing out score and parts in the original key and transposed to a
'recorder friendly' key
M. Ræhs: Sonata 3tia for flauto traverso & b.c.
The first in a planned series of (at least) 10 sonatas by that composer. The
Mup coding facilitates printout of an urtext score, very close to the
original manuscript, a full score with harpsichord settings of the
figured bass and separate flauto and violoncello parts. This is a
musicological project including comments and critical notes on editors'
changes typeset with TeX. The integration of MUP- and TeX generated
stuff is done by shell scripting (bash).
C. Mondrup: Ça ira? - Werner Icking in memoriam
Makes use of a serial composition 'house keeping' macro. If Mup is
called with option -D ANALYZE then row indexes are printed with all
notes. Otherwise they are suppressed for 'normal' typesetting.
T.Ravenscroft: The Whole Booke of Psalmes
Modern editions from the original part books of Ravenscroft's Psalm
settings. These scores make use of mensural notation macros for
typesetting incipits of initial notes, keys and meter indications from
the original printing. These macros correspond to a set of MusiXTeX
macros and Lilypond mensural time symbol feta fonts used in the modern
edition of the music from Ravenscroft's treaty on mensural notation 'A
Briefe Discourse ...' also found on the Icking archive. For the Mup
Macros, the time symbols are 'hand drawn' with Mup drawing instructions.
http://www.hymnsuntogod.org includes hundreds of public domain hymns printed using Mup. Uses shaped note heads.
