ND MUSIC EDITION is committed to producing the highest quality, professional grade, sheet music editions. Too much music is quickly punched in and spat out of notation software with poor layout, organization, and notation. Nels uses the LilyPond Music Engraving system to create sheet music that rivals professional publishing houses. Printed editions will always be more personal and relatable to musicians. While digital editions are gaining in popularity, what they gain in ease they loose in personal response and longevity. Digital devices will always change, update, and reformat, but a printed edition … they will last for at least a hundred years.

I was very impressed by your Bach’s Invention scores, and wondered whether you are going to have Sinfonia socres as well?
I don’t have any plans at the moment to create an edition of Bach’s Sinfonias, but I will consider it.
I love what you have done with the site, and I’m inspired to do the same as you are. I’m curious, what fonts do you use for the text in your scores? Its incredibly elegant and readable, but obviously not LilyPond’s default font tree. Thanks!
Thank you for your comments! I use various fonts in my scores. It depends on the origins of the score (classical, modern), what the score is used for (study, performance), and whether there are lyrics (economy of space). Of course I don’t want to give away all my secret weapons of design (font is one of them), but I will say that you can find just about any font you need, for free, from http://www.fontsquirrel.com.
