> Of course, but that's beside the point as of course you *can* use any font in LilyPond.  But there are no finer options such as detailed implicit selection of font weights, optical sizes (although it does so for notation font!), openType features. But even worse, there's really no useful paragraph formatting. Paragraphs are as ugly as when you disable hyphenation in LibreOffice.

Another option is to use MusiXTeX instead of LilyPond.
