Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
The package underbracket.sty draws brackets to underline text (especially, 
but not exclusively, syllables of song text). It may be combined with 
musixtex/musixlyr, within the argument of the \setlyrics command or
 outside the music score.

The file underbracket.sty provides several macros to define brackets 
which may e.g. start/end centered below syllables. Three length variables 
are provided to allow a fine adjustment of the bracket parameters.
