A quick-and-dirty approach would be to include the Lilypond output as
a pdf image in your latex. This means that you have to run Lilypond
first, crop the sections you want and use \includegraphics to put
them in latex. My suggestion is "quick" only in terms of how long it
might take you to figure out how to include Lilypond code in latex.
BTW, when you do find out, let us know how it is done. The Lilypond
manual looks as if it was typeset in latex but it doesn't say how.
