Subject: RE: Lyr Req/Add: Orchestra Song - German Lyrics?
Here is my tentative CHALLENGE submission with all the requested instruments plus a double bass. To view/typeset the sheet music and listen to the music, there are basically two ways:

a) use a programme called abc2xml to transform the ABC to MusicXML, which then can be read into Sibelius, Finale, MuseScore and many other notation programmes.

b) enter the ABC text into ABC software such as EasyABC or ABCExplorer.

Everybody is welcome to improve upon my proposals, or make their own. Add other instruments such as "The b-b-b-b-b-b-bodh-rán". I suggest that submitters only post the part starting "V:", to work with the same "header" (i.e. the lines from "X:" to "K:C").
