I've compiled a list of such free (and some less free) licenses.
[Some parts are in Dutch]

For Music there are:

The EFF Open Audio License

The Free Art License (GPL-based)

The Open Music License (green, yellow, red)

The Free Music Public License (FPMPL, GPL-based)

The Free Media License (GPL-based)

The Open Source Music License (GPL-based)

Choral Public Domain Library (CDPL, GPL-based)
