Thank you for your prompt reply.
I did not explain the structure of the piece accurately.
It is Opus 13 of Beethoven.
The six sections of the first movement are in separate scores. These are what 
are in the "include"

\version "2.22.1"
\header {
  title =  "Sonate"
  composer = "L. v. Beethoven"
  opus = "Opus 13"
  dedication = "Dem Fursten Carl von Lichnowsky gewidmet"
\include "Op 13"
\include "Op 13"
\include "Op 13"
\include "Op 13"
\include "Op 13"
\include "Op 13"

No header is to appear in each of the sections.

Eventually the second and third movements shall also be included.

Again thank you for your kind attention.

Tricky. You've given the header and nothing else: the /file/ structure (ie 
includes) has nothing to do with the musical structure seen by LP.
We need to know which headers you want to see at the start of each section (≡ 
score, presumably).

I would write a mickey mouse file containing nothing but structure, like the 
attached, in order to work out what's right for you.
