The <part-list> element
The <part-list> element identifies the different musical parts in this document. 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>.
In this order
- <part-group> (Zero or more times)
- <score-part> (Required)
- Zero or more of the following
This element is used in the following examples:
