You try to set
in StaffGroup, but the score has none. Try to do it in ChoirStaff.
Doing similar in Staff will have no effect, as well Staff doesn't
contain multible staves ...

Be cautious setting StaffGroup _and_ VerticalAxisGroup in
container-contexts. The latter may override the former.

See code and comments below


\layout {
  \context {
    \override StaffGrouper.staff-staff-spacing =
         (basic-distance . 60)
         (minimum-distance . 60)
         (padding . 1)
         (stretchabilty . 0))
    %% See comment below for the risk of newly setting the lis
    \override StaffGrouper.staffgroup-staff-spacing = #'((padding . 10))

    %% Below overrides settings of StaffGrouper.staff-staff-spacing
    %% and it newly sets the default-list of
    %% VerticalAxisGroup.staff-staff-spacing
    %% Better provide a full list and generally speaking:
    %% recent ly-version's syntax is superior ;)
%    \override VerticalAxisGroup.staff-staff-spacing = #'((padding . 10))
