Dear Pierre, thanks for the reply. I tried the staff size change you suggested and it
didn't seem to work.
I checked my version number with (from the command line prompt) lilypond -v
Im running version 2.14.2 on a MacBook Pro

Well, then delete \version "2.10.33" in your code.

If I turn off all my naive attempts at controlling the horizontal spacings I get what is
shown in the attached file. The last 5 lines are what Im looking for, but this is strange
as effectively all measures in the file are the same in number of notes.

I think you have to admit that it simply doesn't fit on a single A4 page.
You can either change page dimension or try something like :

\paper {

indent = 0

ragged-last-bottom = ##f

ragged-bottom = ##f

system-count = 21

page-count = 2

}

to get it on two pages.

I also tried some snippets but they failed to generate pdf file.
For example this snippet

I got an error saying incorrect number of argument in the make-moment.
This is also puzzling. I understand make-moment to take two arguments, but the
snippet lists what appears to be a single argument like a fraction a/b
Is this a new version of make-moment that is not supported by the version of
lilypond I am using perhaps ?

Absolutely, wrong version.
for v2.14 use :
\override SpacingSpanner #'base-shortest-duration = #(ly:make-moment 1 2)

HTH,
Pierre
