Accidental on grace note
« on: November 30, 2018, 11:47:24 AM »
Well during my quintet rehearsal today an interesting question arose:

Does an accidental on a grace note carry through across the measure?

According to Gould, "Accidentals hold equally good for grace notes and or measured notes. However, unless the measured note follows the grace note almost immediately, for safety is is best to repeat the accidental for the measured note."

Later on the same page she says  that accidentals on measured notes apply to following grace notes in the same measure.

In either case, I would restate the accidental for maximum clarity.
