Well I can recommand NoteEdit, just take a look at the NoteEdit
homepage: http://noteedit.berlios.de
It's strength are music score editing and using of external music
notation systems like lilypond or musixtex to print your score.
Midi for easier input and listening to your score is supported
as well.

I wouldn't directly compare it to a DTP program like scribus
but more to a TeX frontend like lyx (i.e. formatting of the score
is not done directly with NoteEdit, though you can set several
format options for export).
