I don't know much about frescobaldi, but unzipping the file
and cd Messiah-lys, gives me the folder structure outlined above.
There is also a Makefile and:
$ make help
usage: make <score-rule>
<score> Build a A4 PDF score
<score>-rehearsal Build a A4 PDF score with rehearsal numbers
<score>-letter Build a Letter PDF score
<score>-<part> Build a PDF part score
<score>-delivery Make archive and move PDFs to delivery directory
<score>-all Build all PDF formats and make delivery
which implies that the correct procedure to make the score would be
$ make Haendel/Oratorio/Messiah
lilypond -ddelete-intermediate-files -o out/Messiah
GNU LilyPond 2.19.16
But since I have a newer lilypond version than the source I expect it
to fail, which it does.
Source version can be found with:
$ find . -type f -name \*.ily -or -name \*.ly | xargs grep version
./common/common.ily: #(ly:export (string-append "version "
So to proceed forward I suggest you dig up lilypond version 2.13.7.
There is also a patch in lilypond-patches/lilypond.patch, and looking
through lily/page-turn-page-breaking.cc I can see that that patch is
not applied in the git repo. You might need to apply that patch too
succeed, who knows. Unfortunately the patch doesn't apply cleanly to
neither version 2.11.39 nor 2.13.7.
To get version 2.13.7 do:
$ git branch release/2.13.7
$ git checkout release/2.13.7
Switched to branch 'release/2.13.7'
Then INSTALL.txt in lilypond git covers the compilation process.
