Greetings -

I'm running LilyPond 2.24.0 under Frescobaldi 3.2 and Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS.

I'm trying to get a tempo indication similar to the included screenshot (I couldn't figure out how to include the screenshot as an attachment - sorry). My problem is the "c." I looked at the documentation and at the archives. I tried multiple ways, but either the 1/4 note comes out as the fraction 1/4 or LilyPond rejects the "c.". I also tried using a tilde ("~") instead of "=c.", but no joy. It's not a huge deal, but if someone could point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it.

\version "2.24.1"

\fixed c' {
  \tempo \markup { Simple, flowing ( \hspace #-0.4 \rhythm {{4}} = c.76) }
  \time 2/4
  e4\mp( d8 e)
  c8 c( d e)

The \tempo <text> <duration> = <bpm> form doesn't support customizing the (note = bpm) part, but you can simply include it into the text as markup.

If you also need that tempo in MIDI output, you can use tags to have a \tempo 4 = 76 commands in MIDI and the \tempo \markup ... command in graphical output.

Also, note that \rhythm requires extra braces in 2.24 because its argument is only one note specified as a simple duration. This quirk has been lifted in 2.25.
