I'd like to collect some suggestion for a replacement font for

So (to finally get to the point) I'd be happy about suggestions for
good free text fonts to use with LilyPond.
They should be well equipped in terms of language support and have a

Hi Urs,
I nearly always use TeX Gyre Schola for the lyrics in my lead sheets

Wouldn't those be pretty much exactly the same as the URW++ clones of
Century Schoolbook, except for supporting a larger character set?
Well, I think so. One of the problems - at least for my style sheet, but probably more generally also - is that the default font is pretty wide and therefore is a problem for tight horizontal spacing.

And quite possibly more weights, so that might address one perceived
