The <degree> element

Parent element: <harmony>

The <degree> element is used to add, alter, or subtract individual notes in the chord. The print-object attribute can be used to keep the degree from printing separately when it has already taken into account in the text attribute of the <kind> element.

A harmony with a <kind> value of other can be spelled explicitly by using a series of <degree> elements together with a <root>, <numeral>, or <function> element.
