Dear all, and in particular Mojca Miklavec and Jean-Pierre Delange, who reacted to my first call for help, 

I think I have solved my problem.
Somehow I managed to get Lilypond working from Terminal.  Then I placed the ConTeXt-example with the LilyPond filter that I tried to compile in the same directory als the lilypond binary. Compiling it, as usual, from TeXShop it still did not start LilyPond and the .pdf still had: "[[output file missing"  where the musical example should have been.
However, compiling the file from Terminal did work.

Best regards,
Robert Blackstone
