Erik -

Thanks for the response.  I do Windows, so lag the versions.

Since starting this thread, I've discovered a way that works, tediously, in
2.4.3, by setting in a global \paper block:

betweensystempadding = -.10\in % negative
betweensystemspace   = 0.90\in % less than 1.0, by trial

Then in a \layout block within each \score, stretching vertical distances

\context { \Staff minimumVerticalExtent = #'(-7.4 . 7.4) } % arguments by

Don't analytically understand how these parameters interact to provide what

When you can upgrade to 2.5 or 2.6 someday, it's possible to use a
of \pageBreak and \header {breakbefore=##t } to fully control page breaks.

You can experiment with
\override Score.SeparationItem #'padding = #0.7
(where 0.7 is a value which you find by experimenting), to get the right 
number of systems per page.
