Interesting! The problem is not lilypond-book itself but that it
set the line width to 390pt. With that linewidth it happens that 
the (invisible) bar line where Lilypond wants to break the line 
falls in the middle of a note because of Morley's intricate rhytms.

One solution is to add the property setting
\property Score.barAlways=##t
which allows Lilypond to insert line breaks between every 
single note, not just at every four quavers.
