I just want to point out that there's an openLilyLib package which allows you to use
any installed (i.e. compatible) notation font as easily as

\include "oll-core/package.ily"
\loadPackage notation-fonts
\useNotationFont lilyjazz

This loads a default stylesheet provided for lilyjazz, but you can also
specify custom styles with

\useNotationFont \with {
  stylesheet = #'my-custom-style.ily
} haydn

The repository with the old OFL versions of Abraham Lee's work (which
includes Gonville BTW) has been mentioned, and Frescobaldi provides a
easy-to-use dialog to install and choose notation fonts with built-in
preview function.
