I could write an issue... but the webpage did recomment to write a message first

Here is a folder with an example
you will find the orignal MuseScore, with it’s PDF and mxl export
(mxl is just a compressed archive containing the xml file)
and the import into Lilypond plus PDF export


It is easy for me to correct the ~/lilypond/usr/bin/musicxml2ly file
(a text file)
But I thought it might be useful to others...

Moreover, it would be great to have a lily2musicxml conversion tool!

The xml code for the first note with a chord is like this

<measure number="2">
  <harmony print-frame="no">
    <lyric number="1">

    should be

    chordkind_dict = {

    a:5 results in a two notes chord <a e,>

Could you supply a short musicxml file that demonstrates this?  I would do it, but I don't know musicxml.

That, or you could enter an issue at
