LilyPond syntax highlighting in Sublime Text 2 & 3.
Future versions may include a LilyPond build engine and snippets/autcompletions. Feel free to contact me for feedback, bug reports, and feature suggestions.
git clone http://github.com/yrammos/SubLilyPond.git
SubLilyPond is a LilyPond syntax definition, not a color scheme. It enables Sublime Text to distinguish the various syntactical elements in the LilyPond code, yet the particular color assigned to each element is defined elsewhere, in the active color scheme. A wide range of schemes is freely available, for example via Package Control. Not all schemes provide the highest level of visual differentiation, so you may need to test several.
You may easily optimize SubLilyPond for use with your favorite color scheme by tweaking the scope names of the syntax definition. See this if you really insist on doing so.
Scheme code embedded in LilyPond
Since no Scheme syntax definition is currently available for Sublime Text 2 or 3, SubLilyPond parses embedded Scheme code using the Lisp syntax definition. Scheme is a Lisp dialect, of course, and this workaround has caused no glitches so far.

Please include the following with your bug reports: screenshot, LilyPond snippet manifesting the issue, short issue description, and the name of your color scheme.
The list of keywords in the first release of SubLilyPond was an extended version of Heikki Junes's syntax definition for vim, which comes bundled with LilyPond.
