Anything you write in the header fields is sent directly to
LaTeX which formats the titling. So, this is really a LaTeX
question, not a LilyPond question.
In ordinary LaTeX, the solution is to "escape" the & with a
backslash: \&
However, in the LilyPond input, you have to escape the backslash
once more, so you should write \\& to get a & in the printed output.

\header { piece="Les Galans & les Dames"}

printed. But Lilly seems to be annoyed by the symbol &. How can make Lily print 
it like I want ?
