Maybe you did the same mistake as I did when trying to repeat

a single-line score even if it's too long to fit into one line.
Adding the multiline option solved the problem, see the
example file below.

\documentclass[a4paper]{article}

%\newcommand{\composer}[1]{\begin{flushright}{\textsl{#1}}\end{flushright}}
\newcommand{\composer}[1]{\rightline{#1}}
\begin{document}

Some text

\composer{Poor Composer}
\begin[multiline,relative]{lilypond}
