divLineRepresents a division (divisio) in neume notation. Divisions indicate short, medium, or long pauses similar to breath marks in modern notation.
rend(render) – A formatting element indicating special visual rendering, e.g., bold or italicized, of a text word or phrase.
mNum(measure number) – Designation, name, or label for a measure, often but not always consisting of digits. Use this element when the n attribute on measure does not adequately capture the appearance or placement of the measure number/label.
graceGrpA container for a sequence of grace notes.
stemA stem element.
accid(accidental) – Records a temporary alteration to the pitch of a note.
ambNoteHighest or lowest pitch in a score, staff, or layer.
arpeg(arpeggiation) – Indicates that the notes of a chord are to be performed successively rather than simultaneously, usually from lowest to highest. Sometimes called a "roll".
artic(articulation) – An indication of how to play a note or chord.
barLineVertical line drawn through one or more staves that divides musical notation into metrical units.
beamA container for a series of explicitly beamed events that begins and ends entirely within a measure.

bracketSpanMarks a sequence of notational events grouped by a bracket.

tupletSpan(tuplet span) – Alternative element for encoding tuplets, especially useful for tuplets that extend across bar lines.
turnAn ornament consisting of four notes — the upper neighbor of the written note, the written note, the lower neighbor, and the written note.
verseDivision of a poem or song lyrics, sometimes having a fixed length, meter or rhyme scheme; a stanza.
