In the meantime, I also noticed that for some reason Lilypond 2.18.2 is not

by adding the Jessie repository. Is it’s absence in the Stretch repository
an oversight, or is there some reason for it?

LilyPond depends on Guile 1.8; more recent versions are incompatible so far. Newer Debian versions have removed Guile 1.8. Here are a few threads from the lilypond-devel list that may be of interest.
