Actually, the linewidth setting is taken from the paper format
you use. Also, if you use the geometry package to specify the
page size (or indirectly by specifying the margins), lilypond-book
should also work.

One possibility is to use the functions used within ly2dvi,
see the example file Documentation/user/latex-example.latex.
Otherwise, you could get a right aligned line of text with
\rightline{Georg Phillip Telemann}
