Dear Sir or Madam:
I have completed the tutorial and started coding my first piece of
music. There is a problem that I cannot find a resolution. I am
currently using lilypond to update some of our choir music that was
written many years ago. One song is "Eternal Father" and I thought
this would be a good start for using lilypond.
I actually need to add a total of four voices but I thought it would
be best to get this notation working correctly before moving on with
Here's my problem: When I view the music in adobe, all the b, e, a
and d are shown as naturals. Obviously these should not be shown as
flats. I am attaching the eternal.ly and eternal.pdf files for your
review. I'm sure there is a simple solution for this. Also, I have
the same problem when I use the \key es \major but not when I use \key
c \minor. This one really puzzled me since they both have b flat, e
flat and a flat.
When you are writing music with lilypond, you HAVE to specify "es" or
"is" after the name of the note, if you want it to be flat or sharp. If
not, it's considered as natural. Hence, lilypond is adding the natural
sign if another scale that c major is defined.
If you want an accidental to be written by caution, you can specify a
'!' after the note.
How do I get the natural signs to not display?
By the way, I have used other software such as Voyetra's Maestra and
lilypond has it beat by a long shot.
Also, I have a another question for you: when working with two voices
where the voice1 has a quarter note that is a middle c and the voice2
has a half note that is also a middle c, how to space the notes so
they do not overlap and look like both voices have a quarter note?
Maestra cannot do this. We have several measures where the first and
second tenor have the same for a different duration.
In the current Voice context, you should add:
\override #'merge-differently-headed = ##t

Thanks in advance for your help.
