Yes, The problem lied namely there. Thank you.

Usually I don't try to typeset Title, poet, composer and so on via lilypond.
It is often necessary for me to make a plain text and a music fragments
side-by-side in single document (such as music manual or analytic article).
For my puposes it is more convenient to work in a way described below:

I prepare music.ly file containing music and lyrics only -- without titles.
After that I produce music.tex file via:

$lilypond music.ly Futhermore, I make piece.tex file like this: %==================================== \documentclass[a4paper]{book} \begin{document} \centerline{Title} \flushright{Composer} \input{music.tex} \end{document} %====================================== And later, I produce piece.dvi file via:$ latex piece.tex

To automate the process I use Makefile like this:

#==============================
piece.dvi : piece.tex music.tex
latex $< music.tex : music.ly lilypond$<
#==============================

With this Makefile, it is possible to activate all the process via single
command:

\$ make

Furthermore, I have to produce VERY large (more than 100 pages) music pieces
from time to time. ly2dvi often cannot handle them, but lilypond+latex can.

Thank you.
