Yes, I have used LaTeX. In fact, I have about 1/5 of the project done in it.
And I am not an expert on LaTeX but I run into some problems when typsetting
and designing a page layout that deviates considerably from the standard
document model. In my case, while the poetry that I use for the project could
be easily typset in the standard way and lilypond-book allows me to insert
musical gestures between lines/verses, even words, my idea was to use different
layouts and text formatting (possibly even using layers, can I do that in
LaTeX?) for visual representation of my intentions concerning interpretation of
the texts. Think: concrete poetry.
I googled around various TeX mailing lists and that brought me to ConTeXt,
which I googled, too and I found some threads of similar issues (like people
doing poetry chapbooks). And a few opinions were that ConTeXt is more suitable
for such task than LaTeX. Presumably it offers more flexibility in terms of
layout and such.
I'm rather new to (anything)TeX and I wouldn't know where to start to use
lilypond with ConTeXt. If LaTeX is presently the only way to go with lilypond
I will stick to it.
