The stanza property works only at the very beginning of a score,
so the only chance is to use stz instead:
\property LyricsVoice . stz = "1."
I don't have a running Lilypond here but from reading the source
it seems that Lilypond considers typesetting a stanza at each
bar line but since the grob property visibility-lambda of 
StanzaNumber is set to begin-of-line-visible by default, the stz 
will only be printed at the beginning of new lines.
I would try to do

\property LyricsVoice . StanzaNumber \override 
        #'visibility-lambda = #all-visible

before the bar line at the end of the incipit and 

\property LyricsVoice . StanzaNumber \revert #'visibility-lambda

before the next bar line.
