like Phil already wrote, ties can't change voices. The << ... \\ ... >> construct creates two new voices. If you have << { ... } \new Voice { ... } >> the first part continues the current voice and you can tie notes: { <d a'>2 ~ <cis a'> ~ << { \voiceTwo \stemDown <d a'> } \new Voice { \voiceOne \stemUp {d'4 cis} } >>}

This can be useful, If there are lyrics to bind (or ties) and only a small number of "second-voice" notes. But IMHO Phils solution is more readable in most cases - this is just a suggestion to look at lilys internals.

ADD: you can use \tieDown or \tieUp to control direction of ties.

Hi all,

In the following construction:

        <d a'>2 ~<cis a'>  ~ {<<  \stemDown<d a'>  \\ \stemUp {d'4 cis}>>}

the second "tilde" seems to have no effect.  I want to tie the 'a' in
the second chord to the 'a' in the third chord in the parallel bar.
Am I missing something?  How do I tie such a thing through this
construction?  Everything else about this line seems to work properly.
