I use abc notation [1]. It is lean, has everything I need composition
wise and it is text based. Relevant Debian packages:

    abcm2ps - to typeset your music
    abcmidi - to convert abc files to midi

Useful resources:

    - a page with abc examples [2]
    - abc-users mailing list [3]
    - more complex example: a transcription of Beethoven's Symphony
      No. 7 in abc notation [4]
