Lisp interpreters *are* trivial at their core, especially if (as for an
app like this) efficiency is completely unimportant. Something like SIOD
is really not hard to integrate, and SIOD is way more complex than a
minimal Lisp interpreter needs to be.
(Read McCarthy's original paper sometime, it's brilliant. That most
ancient of Lisps isn't one I'd recommend writing an interpreter for today,
but it does show how easy it can be.)
(btw, I'm not really sure `play these as a unit' really counts as
`special'. It's something *everyone* listening to classical music will
want, for example, and we're not as rare as all that. Not just classical
stuff, either: Steve Reich's not exactly classical, but shuffling the
