There is an example of a music score produced with R and the Hershey fonts
in the book 'R Graphics', by Paul Murrell (Chapman & Hall/CRC, 2005), page

The R Code is on the web page for the book:

BTW, I do a lot of things with R but for music scores I use the ABC language
(http://www.walshaw.plus.com/abc/). You can output PostScript from it with
Jef Moine's abcm2ps (http://moinejf.free.fr/).

Happy new year!
