Go there and check it out. It apparently does MusixML and such. I do not know 
its hard print capabilities. I just signed up, have not actually used it as of 

Lilypond should work but try also mscore--can do the job but a bit unstable, 
nted--upandcoming!,  and newer frontend for lilipond if you want to markup for 
that yourself, such as frescobaldi.
