Right now, the default text fonts in Lilypond are TeX Gyre Schola, which is a variant of URW Century Schoolbook. However, there are some issues with the fonts, in my view. For instance, look at the tittles of the i and j: they have been shrunken and lowered, unlike in all the professional versions of the Century Schoolbook design.

I suggest that we switch to the 2.0 release of the URW fonts (Schola is based on the 1.0 release). The font is called 'C059' and is available here: https://github.com/URWTypeFoundry/Core_35. In comparison with Schola, C059 adds monotonic Greek and Cyrillic support (Schola has "Greek" but its characters are unusable). The only disadvantage is a slightly smaller Latin-Extended glyph supply in C059 vs. Schola.
