In the lilypond 2.19 installed file


I see the following at line 27

  <c es ges>-\markup { \super "o" } % should be $\circ$ ?

Here, instead of ees, is written es.

I've tried this out, and it appears to be a synonym, but I don't see
this documented. Anyone know what's going on?



I'm not sure about actually being documented but I do recall seeing this 
written somewhere.  Your surmise is correct; 'ees' and 'es' *are* synonyms.  I 
think the logic runs like this; d = d and d + es = des (d-flat) so e + es = ees 
= e-flat as 'es' by itself actually indicates a flat sign.  I think that 'es' 
is the normal usage, however, and it is a bit shorter.  I've always just used 
'es' and later learned that 'ees' was a synonym.  I think that 'as' and 'aes' 
may also be synonyms as well.
