I too, find the Setup instructions at https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/languages/ob-doc-lilypond.html difficult to interpret. This page says under Setup; - must be on a very recent version of org-mode - ob-lilypond is also included in the latest Org-mode by default (it seems its not) - add lilypond to your list of babel languages My Org-mode version 9.1.9 Emacs version 26.3 lilypond has been added to my list of babel languages I found lilypond-mode.el and syntax is colored, that seems to work I have grabbed recent ob-babel-lilypond.el from github, and put that into /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/ How or where do I load ob-babel-lilypond.el ? Presently, I cannot tangle the org lilypond examples, and have no M-x ly-* commands. Raw text Lilypond will compile and output OK. And org LaTeX export is working.
