I also notice that with the enclosing of the actual syllable and the en-dash within double quotes, the alignment of the syllable with the note is distorted.

Thanks Kieren!

That's close to what I want. Yes.

However I'd like to see the en-dash centered between the two words it separates. With your workaround it's sort of attached to the left one" And I guess one could get it more towards the second by placing the quotes differently.

Sorry for being picky, but that's why I'm trying to get the typesetting done with TeX. :-)
