In theory, yes.  Lilypond includes a midi2ly converter that will turn
the midi file into a .ly input file for lilypond, which can then
create some printed music from it.

In practice, I don't think midi2ly does a great job at synchronizing
the different tracks (even on midi files created by lilypond), and it
seems to do very poorly on random MIDI files found on the web.

(Question for gnu-music-discuss: Does anyone know of a way to improve
midi2ly's performance, or is it just something that needs work before
it can be a really useful tool?)
