That's true, it is explained in LM 3.2.1 I'm hearing Voices
...tangentially. One has to deduct this when he reads 'The Voice
contexts bear the names "1", "2", etc.'

I propose: to add some lines explaining this very case: how to make
the single voice to keep being the same, although a second voice
arrives. LM 3.2.2 Explicitly instantiating voices does explain that
(the red diamonds example), but does not mention the trick of calling
the voice "1" ! It rather uses a simple << .. \new Voice>> construct.

Again, this is only tangentially explained in LM 3.2.2 because the
\oneVoice command is used with no previous <<\\>>construct !

I could not have figured this, without your help. Thanks!

Now I suppose I have to take the compromise to write this down in NR
Simultaneous Notes.
