Huh, that's a good one, kudos!

I personally think the p is just a bit too large; IMHO it should fit to
the same x-height as the neighbor letters.
In smaller size, I also think that the blackness of L and p is extremely
dominant in contrast to the other letters, but this is just from scaling
of the PNG.  Maybe a "real" markup implementation in Lily would perform
better due to the scaled fonts.
And I'm not too sure about the "Music typesetting for everyone".  It's
nicely integrated, and looks very good in a large image.  But if the
logo goes into the tagline, IMHO it should also look acceptable in a
size where the staff lines are at about the same distance as for the
default music staves.  The "subscript tagline" has certainly less than
1.5 mm height then, and if it's removed, the lower serif of the L gets a
bit too dominant for my taste, too.  So I suppose we'd need this in two
versions, for smaller and larger logos.
