Dear Sir or Madam:
I have completed the tutorial and started coding my first piece of music.
There is a problem that I cannot find a resolution. I am currently using
lilypond to update some of our choir music that was written many years ago.
One song is "Eternal Father" and I thought this would be a good start for
I actually need to add a total of four voices but I thought it would be best
to get this notation working correctly before moving on with the voices.
Here's my problem: When I view the music in adobe, all the b, e, a and d
are shown as naturals. Obviously these should not be shown as flats. I am
attaching the eternal.ly and eternal.pdf files for your review. I'm sure
there is a simple solution for this. Also, I have the same problem when I
use the \key es \major but not when I use \key c \minor. This one really
puzzled me since they both have b flat, e flat and a flat.
How do I get the natural signs to not display?
By the way, I have used other software such as Voyetra's Maestra and
lilypond has it beat by a long shot.
Also, I have a another question for you: when working with two voices where
the voice1 has a quarter note that is a middle c and the voice2 has a half
note that is also a middle c, how to space the notes so they do not overlap
and look like both voices have a quarter note? Maestra cannot do this. We
have several measures where the first and second tenor have the same for a
Thanks in advance for your help.
