Content Model

Contains elements as defined in the following table.

Component  Type  Occurs  Default  Description 
  1..1 
work  work  0..1  Works are optionally identified by number and title. The work type also may indicate a link to the opus document that composes multiple scores into a collection.
movement-number  xs:string  0..1  The movement-number element specifies the number of a movement.
movement-title  xs:string  0..1  The movement-title element specifies the title of a movement, not including its number.
identification  identification  0..1  Identification contains basic metadata about the score. It includes the information in MuseData headers that may apply at a score-wide, movement-wide, or part-wide level. The creator, rights, source, and relation elements are based on Dublin Core.
defaults  defaults  0..1  The defaults type specifies score-wide defaults for scaling, layout, and appearance.
credit  credit  0..* 

The credit type represents the appearance of the title, composer, arranger, lyricist, copyright, dedication, and other text and graphics that commonly appears on the first page of a score. The credit-words and credit-image elements are similar to the words and image elements for directions. However, since the credit is not part of a measure, the default-x and default-y attributes adjust the origin relative to the bottom left-hand corner of the first page. The enclosure for credit-words is none by default.

part-list  part-list  1..1  The part-list identifies the different musical parts in this movement. Each part has an ID that is used later within the musical data. Since parts may be encoded separately and combined later, identification elements are present at both the score and score-part levels. There must be at least one score-part, combined as desired with part-group elements that indicate braces and brackets. Parts are ordered from top to bottom in a score based on the order in which they appear in the part-list.
part  xs:anyType (restriction)  1..*
