Hello list,

I am having trouble setting lyrics to a choral part that divides
itself for a few bars only. Here is an excerpt:

#(ly:set-option 'old-relative)
\version "2.4.0"
\score {
      \context Voice = "T" {
        \set Staff.instrument = "T." \set Staff.instr = "T."

      \new Lyrics \lyricsto "T" {
        If mu- sic food of love,
        sing "" on,  "" "" "" "" sing on, sing on,
        till I am fil'd, am fill'd with joy. "" ""
        Then "" my "" list'- "" ning soul you move,
        For then my list'- ning "" "" soul you move,
        To plea- sures that can ne- ver cloy. "" ""
        Your eyes, your mien, your tongue de- clare,
        You are mu- - - sic ev- ry- where.
        Your "" eyes, "" your eyes, your mien, your tongue de- clare

(There really are three more voices, of course.)

Now, the manual told me how to use << >> in order to divide a part
temporarily, but how do I associate lyrics with either of the divided
parts? As you see, the text simply skips the divided section:
`Pleasures invade' should coincide with the Solo in bar 23, but it is
only set under bar 29.
