Hm - the accidentals showed up in the bassoon-only part, or the complete
conductor's score? I tried changing the key to c in mine, and the bassoon only
part got the accidentals, but the bassoon line in the full score did not. Is
this different from what you see?

I can try to put together a sample .ly, but since the score includes about 30
files, it's not quick and easy.

Sorry to be pedantic but make sure

2. You always include the group

As regard to what I did, I took the bassoon.ly and simply removed the version
statement (so that LilyPond didn't complain it was too old) and also the
include plus the \globala - which was in the include file. Then I compiled it
'normally'. It didn't look pretty, granted, but I got accidentals.
