That's the issue, then. My initial mail made it sound like I was
getting page breaks after every \score, when in fact I was just
getting a page break after every \book.

Aargh. This complicates things because, in some cases, I have a
bunch of verses written out under the music, and then the footer
(which isn't a page footer per se, but rather a "hymn footer."). In
this second case, of course, all the extra verses plus the footer
are on the next page. As you can see, I had been counting on the
music output to stop right below the final staff.
Hand-hacking, here I come.
