I agree it does not belong within any section, yet
at present it appears within 2.1.1 Entering lyrics.
As the only references we have so far identified
are one to the Learning Manual and one to templates,
both of which are suitable as introductory material,
the References section could go right at the top,
as 2.1.1 References for vocal music, before the
present Entering lyrics section, couldn't it?

Well, I wouldn't dare propose it myself, but if you agree with it,
this is probably the way I'll go.

There is an alternative layout, similar to the one I had in mind when I first set out the headings for NR 2.

It is to treat the different vocal styles such
as Simple songs, part writing, chants, etc, as
the equivalent of the different instruments in
the other NR 2 sections.  So this style layout
would be something like:

2.1 Vocal music
2.1.1 Common notation for vocals
2.1.2 Setting simple songs
2.1.3 Part writing
2.1.4 Setting chants
2.1.5 etc

Then under Common notation for vocals
there would be

 References for vocals
 <various sections with all the common stuff>

and under each vocal style would be all the
specialist stuff for that style. This has two advantages: it has the same layout as the other specialist sections, and people
wanting to just set simple songs don't have to
wade through stuff on other types of vocal music.
Might this be better?  I quite like it.
