Oh, dear.  Very sorry for what seemed no doubt like an entire school of red 

There is an incantation to use for installing Frescobaldi via MacPorts (sudo 
port install lilypond) but not AFAIK Homebrew.  

Much, much easier is David L’s .dmg Frescobaldi package that has already been 
identified with URL.  Had my answer been more complete (i.e., had I thought to 
include the flamin’ URL for the Frescobaldi package) things would have been 
much, much simpler for you.  

IMHO Frescobaldi works better than Emacs and lilypond-mode, but some folks have 
Emacs keybindings coded into their fingers and prefer to stay with that.

In this case the incomplete answer was much worse than no answer at all.  I 
apologize, rif!
