divLineRepresents a division (divisio) in neume notation. Divisions indicate short, medium, or long pauses similar to breath marks in modern notation.
rendA formatting element indicating special visual rendering, e.g., bold or italicized, of a text word or phrase.
accidRecords a temporary alteration to the pitch of a note.
ambNoteHighest or lowest pitch in a score, staff, or layer.
arpegIndicates that the notes of a chord are to be performed successively rather than simultaneously, usually from lowest to highest. Sometimes called a "roll".
articAn indication of how to play a note or chord.
attaccaAn instruction to begin the next section or movement of a composition without pause.
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.
beamSpanAlternative element for explicitly encoding beams, particularly those which extend across bar lines.
beatRptAn indication that material on a preceding beat should be repeated.
bendA variation in pitch (often micro-tonal) upwards or downwards during the course of a note.
bracketSpanMarks a sequence of notational events grouped by a bracket.
breathAn indication of a point at which the performer on an instrument requiring breath (including the voice) may breathe.
caesuraBreak, pause, or interruption in the normal tempo of a composition. Typically indicated by "railroad tracks", i.e., two diagonal slashes.
chordA simultaneous sounding of two or more notes in the same layer *with the same duration*.
clefIndication of the exact location of a particular note on the staff and, therefore, the other notes as well.
cpMarkA verbal or graphical indication to copy musical material written elsewhere.

custosSymbol placed at the end of a line of music to indicate the first note of the next line. Sometimes called a "direct".
dirAn instruction expressed as a combination of text and symbols, typically above, below, or between staves, but not on the staff — that is not encoded elsewhere in more specific elements, like tempo, dynam or repeatMark.
dotDot of augmentation or division.
dynamIndication of the volume of a note, phrase, or section of music.
fSingle element of a figured bass indication.
fermataAn indication placed over a note or rest to indicate that it should be held longer than its written value. May also occur over a bar line to indicate the end of a phrase or section. Sometimes called a 'hold' or 'pause'.

mNumDesignation, 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.

trillRapid alternation of a note with another (usually at the interval of a second above).
tupletA group of notes with "irregular" (sometimes called "irrational") rhythmic values, for example, three notes in the time normally occupied by two or nine in the time of five.
tupletSpanAlternative 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.
