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

$ lilypond

Futhermore, I make piece.tex file like this:






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 :
      lilypond $<

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

$ 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.
