comment How do instruments with discrete tuning play chords alongside those with continuous tuning?
Almost all fixed-pitch instruments in the orchestra (harps, xylophones, piano) don't produce sustained notes, which makes the difference even less noticeable. The one exception is the rarely-used pipe organ, and you do in fact often hear discrepancies with a prominent organ part if you listen closely.

comment Suggested text material about Italian baroque composition
I misread your title as "I want to set texts to baroque music, which poems would be a good choice?" It might be better to say you seek literature about this variety of baroque style.

comment Suggestion for a song with single note duration
Pretty much every "perpetuum mobile" piece ever written satisfies this criterion. In theory it might mix a continuous movement of one duration with some even smaller notes, but in practice this is rarely done.

comment What is the name of the symbol like a combination of a mordent and f?
Also note that the trill should actually be on the third note of that bar, not the fourth.

comment What do the letters above the piano staff represent?
Those are chord symbols. Look up en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… and read the first section.

comment Trill in Bach fugue WTC 1 BWV 851
Starting with the auxiliary note is definitely the historically accurate thing. The opposite style didn't become common until later.

comment Multi-measure percent repeats in lilypond
The third image in lilypond.org/doc/v2.15/Documentation/notation/… shows percent repeat signs that are good for several bars. Is that not what you want?
