[MEI-L] Measure 2 of Erlkonig

Hi Morgan,

I cannot get it to align either.  The main problem is that the dotted
quarter note chords in the top staff are triplets, but they are not encoded
inside of <tuplet>.  It seems that verovio does not allow <bTrem> inside
<tuplet> nor <tuplet> inside <bTrem>.  I tried both ways:

VM72:1 [Warning] Element <tuplet> within <bTrem> is not supported and will
be ignored
VM72:1 [Warning] Element <bTrem> within <tuplet> is not supported and will
be ignored

Probably verovio does not yet support @copyof as well:

 <bTrem copyof="#bTrem1"/>

A second problem is that verovio requires a duration on the <chord>, and
durations on <note>s inside the chord are ignored:

<chord stem.dir="up" stem.mod="1slash">
                    <note pname="g" oct="3" dur="8" dots="1"/>
                    <note pname="g" oct="4" dur="8" dots="1"/>

This should be :

<chord stem.dir="up" stem.mod="1slash" dur="8" dots="1">
                    <note pname="g" oct="3"/>
                    <note pname="g" oct="4"/>

The lack of duration causes verovio to assign a breve duration to the
chord, which is another thing causing the alignment problem.
