Discussion of lyrics:LilyPond vs {{hymn/verses}}[edit]

In [edit], it was suggested that as the lillypond content already had the lyrical content, there was no need to include them twice.

This was reverted, but I'd like a second opinion.

The verses here were originally transcribed as text because at the time the relevant extension for doing scores didn't exist. As the relevant extension now exists, and the titles could be picked up from header information I'd like views on whether there should be a "style" guide recomendation to:

i) Retain lyrics as a duplicate text version when they are present in scores.. or ii) Remove duplicate text lyrics when they are already present in scores. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 12:08, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

I added the text to the LilyPond markup, because this is how it is written in the source. I didn't remove the {{hymn/verses}} because I am not familiar with that particular template. I believe that it is wise for the text to be available, for machine-readability and accessibility purposes (esp. since LilyPond renders as an image), BUT I also think that the extra text should NOT be visible since we are trying to replicate the original source, and this text is not displayed thus in the source. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 17:08, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
(e/c) I see this as a work-specific issue. The conversation should be had on the Index talk page with the editors who are involved with the work. If from that discussion there is a proposal that could be generalised to other music-heavy works, then a RfC can be created here. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 17:16, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

@ShakespeareFan00: If you still want to weigh in on this discussion, what do you think of the solution I have implemented at Faith of Our Fathers (unknown source)? I would also consider putting the lyrics in mainspace only instead of in the page namespace. —Beleg Tâl (talk) 17:08, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
