Online Music Database

I'm looking at some options for managing a online (printed) music library.  I was thinking that Alfresco or some other CMS would be a good starting point, but I'm having a problem figuring out how to satisfy a couple requirements.  Here are the basic workflows and hopefully someone can give me pointers how to get Alfresco to do what I need.  Other option/tool suggestions would also be welcome.

New Music:
-  Scan music into PDFs, one per part (flute-1, trumpet-2, trombone-4, etc)
-  Upload files to CMS (could use WebDAV or CIFS support here)
- Tag each file with the appropriate part info (can this be done automatically using file names?)

Distribute chart:
- Search CMS using chart name, which returns a set of PDF files
- Download PDF files as a single ZIP file (Can't find the ability to bulk download based on a search)

Lost book:
- Search CMS using part name tag (i.e flute-1), which returns a set of PDF files (demo system doesn't support search by tag, but I'm assuming this can be done)
- Download search results as a single ZIP file for printing (same issue as above)

Thanks!
