Hello, Mats:

Just use simultaneous notes in the same voice:
r4  <<g4 d'2>> <<g,4 es'2 d'2>> }

or, with the upper voice as well:
r4 << {b4 ( c ) } \\ <<g,4 d'2>> >> <<g,4 es'2 d'2>>

You will get some warnings, but the desired output.


One question and one comment+question:

1. Is there any way to suppress warnings for individual measures? For example, since I know I'm going to get warnings on these double-stops, can I hide just the warnings in those bars (so I don't miss real "errors")?

Not that I know of.

2. The alignment is not correct in a simultaneous set containing both quarter-notes and whole notes:

\time 7/4 r4\p \appoggiatura g8( <c bf'>2)-\upbow << \transparentStem g4 d'1 cs'1-\downbow >>

Any way (beyond extra-offset) to fix that? Can I set the lowest note as a whole note (which should fix the alignment) and then change the notehead glyph somehow?

Don't you want the stem of the quarter note? Why not typeset the last
chord using <<  d1 cis'1-\downbow \\ g,4  >> instead? This gives left
alignment and a quarter note that makes sence (i.e. it has a stem).
In your example, the the note heads were aligned to the right, as you
see if you don't make the stem transparent.

Please include complete examples if possible, I had to guess what your
macro \transparentStem did.
