Could you let us know what version of LilyPond you're using? - aspects of this have changed recently

Subject: ossia and lyrics

I've been tasked with altering a score I've prepared.  The score
currently consists of a piano part with a vocal line and a contrabass
obligato line.  As it stands, all is well.  Now I need to put in ossia
passages for the voice.  I have managed to create ossia passages by
using examples in the manual but I'm running into a problem with getting
the lyrics to appear.  I want the ossia musical passages to appear above
the original but I don't want lyrics under the ossia passage, only under
the original.  I currently have the separate elements of the vocal
material defined like this:

% Lyrics
soprano = \lyricmode { "soprano lyrics" }

% music
sop =  \relative c'' { the soprano's music }

% assembled lyrics and music
vocal = {
    \new Voice = sop \relative {
    \clef G
    \addlyrics { \soprano }

I'd like to define my ossia sections and put them together with the
definitions I already have without doing too much violence to the work
I've already done.  I was experimenting with the ossias (ossiƦ?) from
section 1.6.2 of the Notation Manual but ran into trouble with the
lyrics not showing up and getting an error about; cannot find Voice
'uniqueContext0' or something to that effect.  I suspect there is some
detail involving nesting, contexts or something which is proving beyond
my ability to locate and/or decipher in the docs.
