   Attached are a simplified LaTeX file and the two Lilypond files it references. Barbershop harmony is for unaccompanied voices, so there's no piano part or chord symbols, but from what you've written, I gather that seeing how the lilypond gets included in the LaTeX is what interests you.

Something like that was in my mind at first. (Using pdflatex instead of
lylualatex) But at the moment I would be more than happy to have a
simple but pretty printed songbook. So I decided to start with a
lilypond file and I might split it up in future.

If you have some simple example, that would be nice.

How would it look like? Would it be a full lilypond file with version
and core->cords, frets, grandtsaff->voices and lyrics or would the
lyrics come from inside LaTeX?

I think, I should use "\lilypondfile{}" in latex for such files
and then use just pdflatex to compile it?
