Can anyone tell me why this code places all of the lyrics under the
highvoice staff instead of each set of lyrics under its own staff?

You should treat a Lyrics context just like a Staff context: if there are
more of them, give them names, otherwise Lily doesn't know which Lyrics
context you are talking about and it will just assume that there is only
one Lyrics context/line and add all words to that line.

Thank you very much. I didn't really understand how that worked for staff context either. Now that you describe it this way I see where the documentation on contexts should help me make a lot more sense of this. The relationship between these two templates didn't make sense:

|/extra/debian/lilypond-1.6.6/input/template/| <> |/extra/debian/lilypond-1.6.6/input/template/| <>

and I don't yet understand why commands like \note and \context seem to be sometimes used redundantly.

Thanks again,
