Hi Reinier,

I suspect that whatever you are using to render the files (Verovio?) just doesn't support the @beam.group attribute (yet).

This page [1] in the MEI guidelines seems to suggest that beaming can be done automatically by using beam.group. So I tried adding beam.group='4,4,4,4' to either the scoreDef or the staffDefs of my example, as follows:
