Hi Chris,

thanks for your report.
\instrumentSwitch naturely affects the whole Staff, but multiple
Voices shouldn't cause multiple output of instrumentCueName.
So I'd agree, it's buggy.

Not sure, if it's the correct fix, the following seems to work:

instrumentSwitch =
   (name) (string?)
   (_i "Switch instrument to @var{name}, which must be predefined with
   (let* ((handle (assoc name instrument-definitions))
          (instrument-def (if handle (cdr handle) '())))

     (if (not handle)
         (ly:input-warning (*location*) "No such instrument: ~a" name))
      ;; context-spec-music
      ;; changed to:
      (make-music 'SimultaneousMusic
                  (map (lambda (kv)
                          (car kv)
                          (cdr kv)))
