I needed to do something very similar.  What you can do is use \markup{ } in 
your \header{ } block for the composer field.  Then you can use text formatting 
to adjust it.  Start here:

...and scroll down to the "Demonstration of availbale fields" (for v2.13, or 
find the "Creating titles" section for your version).  There is a link to 
"Formatting text" just above this section which is useful as well for this.

Hope this helps,

I'm transcribing some sheet music, and I'm wondering if I can force a 
linebreak in the 'composer' field. The reason being that the list of 
composers includes 5 people, and unfortunately runs off the page. :(

I've perused the documentation and searched through the LSR. Still can't 
find a solution.


p.s. This is my first time using lilypond, and despite this issue, it's 
freaking awesome.
