Wow, I should really not answer questions when I'm not awake.

Lyrics need to be associated with a voice context. Regardless of whether or not you name them, lilypond creates its own contexts when you use the <<{}\\{}>> structure. To solve this, just use <<{\voiceone}\context Voice = "new voice" {\voiceTwo}>>\oneVoice. Notice the lack of the \\ between the two contexts.

Hi there,

I'm trying to put lyrics to a voice in a two-voice context, but I seem to be doing something wrong. In the following minimal example the notes after the split part are garbled:



    \new Staff

    \relative c'


        \time 2/4


            { \voiceOne R2 } \\

            \new Voice = "cue" {


                c8 d e f


            \new Lyrics \lyricsto "cue" {

                do re mi fa



        g4 g4

        a8 a a a



\version "2.10.33"

The aim is, of course, to manually typeset vocal cue notes. Any help greatly appreciated.
