Bess You Is My Woman Now

We bought the transposed version which starts in the key of D and goes through many keys afterwards. The duet section (from the 2nd system on page 7) which is written in the key of B is really in the key of E flat. It is transposed basically into the key of D sharp major. Nobody writes in the key of D sharp major and it would be much easier to read and play if it were written in the key of E flat (which is the same as D sharp). I believe this was transposed by a computer program and nobody considered what key would be much easier to play.

Bess You Is My Woman

Some odd accidentals - obviously a result of computer music-setting, but make it very hard to sight-read - things like ... E flat at the top of an F sharp 6 chord, instead of D sharp ... the brackets around warning accidentals are too big and intrusive.
