I do not use denemo, but here's how I do this kind of stuff :

I have one file per voice or instrument that each defines it's own
staff (your \AltoStaff, \BaritoneStaff  ...).

And for each output that I want, I include the necessary files, and
define the need \score {}. 

This way, if I only want the Baritone part, I do not have to process
or print other parts.
