"The inspiration for LilyPond came
when two befriended musicians got annoyed with the
bland and boring look of computer print-outs. Every
musician prefers reading beautiful music, so
couldn't we programmers solve that printing problem?
LilyPond just does that: it prints
music in the best traditions of classical engraving
with minimum fuss. Don't waste time on tuning
spacing, moving around symbols, or shaping slurs.
