I have a Mendelssohn choral work with german (de) and latin (lat)
lyrics. How can I achieve to set the latin lyrics in italics?

% works, but both lyrics are in regular/upright font
        \new Lyrics \lyricsto "bass" { \bassDeVerse }
        \new Lyrics \lyricsto "bass" { \bassLatVerse }

* sth, like this, does not work / compile error
        \new Lyrics \lyricsto "bass" { \italic \bassLatVerse }

* works (but I'm aiming for italic, not tiny)
        \new Lyrics \lyricsto "bass" { \tiny \bassLatVerse }

You should be able to adjust the font-shape using a \with block:

  \new Lyrics \with { \override LyricText.font-shape = #'italic }
