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 using lilypond.

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 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.

1.  You must show us some of your Lilypond (.ly) so we can help.

2. You probably moce the same mistake that I and others first made. You must use B flat (bes) when you mean B flat. Lily is not like programs like Finale that use the key signature to alter the note. b -is b natural and bes is b flat no mater what the key signature.
