One solution is to let ly2dvi merge several files: 
The problem is that you only get the full titling on the 
first piece. Maybe you also want a page break between the
different pieces?

I made some attempts to use Ghostscript for the merging. 
gs -sDEVICE=pswrite -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE
works but the staff lines disappear in the output unless you used
dvips -Ppdf file.dvi
to produce the Postscript file. Also, the result looks fairly bad 
on screen even though I think it prints OK.
I don't understand fully what happens here, it seems that most of
the original Postscript turns into bitmaps, which explains the
poor visibility on the screen. Still, I don't understand why the
lines disappear.
