Generates high-quality songbooks with "Il Canzonatore"

Description

Songpress is a free, easy to use song typeset program for Windows and Linux, that generates high-quality songbooks. Songpress is focused on song formatting. Once your song is ready, you can paste it into your favorite Windows program, to give your songbook the look you like the most.

With Songpress you cannot print your songs directly. Instead, once you have prepared your song, you have to "transfer" the song to an application that is able to print it; such as your favourite word processor (Microsoft Word, Openoffice.org, etc.), a desktop publishing application (for example Microsoft Publisher), etc. Why? Because Songpress's business is to format beautiful songs - and it is skilled at it. But to prepare beautiful page layouts is the business of other good pieces of software, such as a Desktop Publishing application.
