Another source of open fonts that may be of sufficient quality for use
in scores is Arkandis Digital Foundry[4].

What do you think about Tribun and Romande there? Tribun comes with a condensed variant (IIRC, I used it a few times for tight lyrics), and Romande's No. 2 even seems to be specifically designed with sheet music in mind, if I'm not mistaken by the little I remember of French:

[ from ]
Romande No2 a été réalisée pour servir à la
rédaction de partitions musicales. Elle offre une
chasse légèrement condensée et une hauteur globale
quelque peu réduite par rapport à la version

Of course, this alone doesn't mean it's the best font out there for your needs...
