I was almost going to suggest to tweak  font-relative-size but then I read

The problem is that the chord code inserts explicit size changes into
the output. I guess the offending function is

        (define (pitch->text pitch)
            '(font-relative-size . 2)
            (make-string 1 (integer->char (+ (modulo (+ (cadr pitch) 2) 7) 
           (accidental->text-super (caddr pitch))))

(see chord-name.scm).  I am no chord-name guru, so I don't know the
proper solution, but I guess you could get away with
putting this into the input file:

        #(define (pitch->text pitch)
            '(font-relative-size . 1)

              ;; or whatever.     ^^^

            (make-string 1 (integer->char (+ (modulo (+ (cadr pitch) 2) 7) 
           (accidental->text-super (caddr pitch))))
