That sounds as a nice project.

What is it exactly, that you want to make?  Do you want to make a
language for describing gregorian chant, or do you also need to
actually produce notation from that language?

If you need to produce notation, I would focus on that.  The language
that you need will follow and evolve automatically.  Once you have a
useful convenient language, writing an XML converter should not take
much more than a couple of days.

Juergen (cc) knows the details about the state of LilyPond's gregorian
chant engine.
