language issues with Mac OS X Sierra 10.12

I upgraded my Mac from 10.11 (El Capitan) to 10.12 (Sierra).  

In my System Preferences, Language & Region settings I have multiple “Preferred 
languages” entered with the primary (first in the list) English (U.S.).

All LilyPond menus are in English but when I “Typeset file" the default file 
shipped with LilyPond (scale c…c) the processing window displays in the first 
non-English language in my list (in my case, Spanish - it skips any other 
versions of English I might have installed like Canada shown above).

  title = "A scale in LilyPond"

\relative {
  c d e f g a b c

\version "2.18.2"  % necessary for upgrading to future LilyPond versions.

Enhorabuena. La compilación se ha completado satisfactoriamente.

If I remove all languages from the Language & Region list but the primary, all 
is in English.

Note:  I also use GIMP, another GNU based program, and there everything 
displays in the first non-English language when preferences are set to the 
default “System Language.”  In GIMP I have the option of selecting English via 
their local preferences, and then get English for all menus, etc.  I found a 
number of blog posts on this issue with GIMP and MacOS Sierra but nothing about 

I spent considerable time with Apple Support discussing this issue and they 
will investigate from their end but imply it may be a GNU issue as both 
LilyPond and GIMP are GNU based.
