[SOLVED] Re: Problem with repeat

Forgive me for not modifying the Subject: line earlier, but of the
three other replies, one illustrates my middle paragraph (thanks
for saving me the effort), one looks for a problem that's not there
and one suggests recomposing the music.

(I took the liberty of removing the motes from my previous posting!)

Do you intend ever unfolding these repeats? Particularly, do you
want to do so in a manner that involves unfolding the lyrics?

If not, then just remove the repeat structures from the lyrics
and set them as normal. Fortunately, you don't have to worry
about edge effects like ties and hyphens crossing the repeat

If you want to be able to unfold the notes and lyrics, then
you have to use the tedious method of entering lyrics with
their individual durations: Sing8 Ju -- bi -- la4 -- te
and so on. Then specify the score with:
 \new Voice = vsoprano { \soprano }
 \new Lyrics \lyricmode { \set associatedVoice = vsoprano \sopranotext }
That way, it will Just Work™.
