GNU Denemo

Denemo lets you quickly prepare notation for publishing with Lilypond. It does not strive to display all notation graphically, or to be the most complete graphic enviroment. But in concert with LilyPond, it is an extremely powerful music notation system. It is very keyboard intensive and relies sparingly on the mouse. As well as exporting to the Lilypond format, it exports to the ABC notation format.
