Version 2.13, right?

Then "between-scores-system-spacing" should do the trick if your
second score doesn't have a title (piece, opus).
If there is a title then it should be "before-title-spacing".

To use with the correct NEW SYNTAX, so things like "2\cm" are no longer
accepted, you should use a syntax like:

before-title-spacing = #'((space . 10) (padding . 1) (minimum-distance . 8))
between-scores-system-spacing = #'((space . 14) (padding . 1)
(minimum-distance . 8))

As explained in 2.13 doc, NR 4.1.2 "Page formatting: Vertical dimensions".
Is this what you tried?

There is also the \vspace command.
With dimensions in "staff spaces": \vspace #4
