It works, it works! Now I can get forward with what I'm doing :-) 

One more thing. I tried to add \lyricsto to the line above, but this
caused an error message. I'm trying to align the lyrics to the melody,
so that it wouldn't be necessary to add the durations by hand. Is there
a way to get this to work with the structure I'm using?

Great, this would be very helpful for newcomers.

Thanks for helping me out with this :-)
