Solfa to staff notation
Has anyone done any work on translating tonic Solfa to staff notation? I want to access and maybe use some old Welsh hymn tunes that are written in Solfa. For most people today and for accompaniment they need to be written in staff. I am very ignorant on how to do this. If anyone can give guidance or suggest a programme for doing this I would be extremely grateful.
With the decline of the Welsh language and religious life, unless this is done many formerly well-used tunes (perhaps very old traditional tunes) will be lost.
I attach a sample of what I am working from. Clod Welsh hymn tune.pdf
This seems to be something you want:
As far as I can determine, it can export musicxml which can be imported into MuseScore.

Thank you, Andreas. That is very helpful. It looks to be a bit time consuming transcribing, but it is a route that I am prepared to follow if it unlocks the tunes for use.
PS. I would, of course, appreciate any other suggestions!

How can this be more time consuming than you expected? As far as I can tell, you would just have to type in the solfa tex, as it appears in your original text, or possibly even quicker with some shortcuts, and then add title and key, and export to musicxml and import into MuseScore. In what way could this be less time-consuming?

Typing in nearly 500 digits without error from a closely printed book for one hymn tune is going to be time-consuming. I have no criticism. I am very grateful for your help.
