songbook – Package for typesetting song lyrics and chord books

The package provides an all purpose songbook style. Three types of output may be created from a single input file: “words and chords” books for the musicians to play from, “words only” songbooks for the congregation to sing from, and overhead transparency masters for congregational use. The package will also print a table of contents, an index sorted by title and first line, and an index sorted by key, or by artist/composer. The package attempts to handle songs in multiple keys, as well as songs in multiple languages.
