thank you very much for the explanations. I already tried
fiddling around with the line-break-system-details,
and I am very happy that this level of control is finally
possible, but I think it is not the right thing for this
project in particular, because:

- My Score has 40 voices (Tallis, Spem in alium),
  so I have to specify the position of each of the 40
  Staves plus the Lyrics "Staves".

- My score has approx. 25 linebreaks (pagebreaks, actually,
  there are no real linebreaks), so this means I have to
  specify the positions of the Staves for every page:
  about 1000 times for the whole score.

What I need is some setting that says:
"This Staff (or Lyrics Line) is XYZ high. Always. Period."

Any suggestions for a solution or workaround?
