The lilypond website talks a lot about beauty and so on, and I would agree with a lot of what they say. However, I particularly like lilypond (apart from the beauty) because I find it functional. I can produce, combine and edit scores with ease and speed.
This package is ideal for those who dislike "point and click" or "drag and drop" modes of editing; input is ascii (text) and similar to latex (a means of mathematical typesetting). Granted, it takes a while to learn, but the effort is worth it.
More information on this package can be found on the Debian web site.
