No :-) unlike what its name suggests, the `font-family` property is a family 
symbol, not a font string (yes, it's another misnamed thing in font handling). 
The `font-family` values recognized by default are `'roman`, `'sans` and 
`'typewriter`. Nothing prevents you from doing (in !1888 syntax)

\paper {
  fonts.roman = "music"

The practical impact of the change is mostly a syntax modification that is not 
easy to convert-ly (the removal of `\text`, which should be replaced with 
`\roman`, `\sans` or `\typewriter` depending on the case).
