I find this all slightly depressing. I thought Rosegarden / Lilypond
ought to be the tools for the job, but the message I keep hearing is
that they don't come up to the standards required for professionally
printed music. I wish somebody could properly explain why.
I've been commissioned to write a book of choral music, which requires
multivoice staves, so obviously Rosegarden will fail there. I shall have
to let them do the setting in Sibelius unless I can come up with some
solid arguments to the contrary.
It just seems ludicrous to me that we have all this incredible
multimedia software at our disposal, but every time someone wants to
typeset music we have to consider going back to proprietary tools like
Finale / Score / Sibelius. This is terribly disappointing.
Please say it isn't so. ;)
