Hi Urs,
I nearly always use TeX Gyre Schola for the lyrics in my lead sheets and 
songbooklets - mostly the same as Century Schoolbook, because it’s very good 
readable even under bad light conditions.
Other Open Source fonts I like very much are e.g. Gentium, Antykwa Toruńska and 
TeX Gyre Pagella (Palatino), but I wouldn’t recommend them for lyrics.
The only Open Source fonts with several weights that I would recommend, is TeX 
Latin Modern, even if it looks rather old fashioned; but I like the sans serif, 
e.g. for chord names.

Greetlings, Hraban
