Member of
model.mdivLikeGroups elements used to represent generic structural divisions of music notation.
Contained By
(MEI.shared) Groups elements used to represent generic structural divisions of music notation.
bodyContains the whole of a single musical text, excluding any front or back matter.
mdiv(musical division) – Contains a subdivision of the body of a musical text.
Component declarations that are shared between two or more modules.
bodyContains the whole of a single musical text, excluding any front or back matter.
mdiv(musical division) – Contains a subdivision of the body of a musical text.
May Contain
(MEI.shared) Groups elements used to represent generic structural divisions of music notation.
mdiv(musical division) – Contains a subdivision of the body of a musical text.
(MEI.shared) Groups elements that collect separate performer parts.
partsProvides a container for performers' parts.
(MEI.shared) Groups elements that represent a score.
scoreFull score view of the musical content.
Component declarations that are shared between two or more modules.
mdiv(musical division) – Contains a subdivision of the body of a musical text.
partsProvides a container for performers' parts.
scoreFull score view of the musical content.
Remarks

The mdiv element may contain one or both of 2 possible views of the music. The score view is the traditional full and open score while the parts view contains each performer's view of the score; that is, his part. These 2 views are necessary because it is not always possible or desirable to generate one from the other. The score and parts elements are placed here and not directly within the body element because score and part characteristics may change from mdiv to mdiv. For example, the 2nd movement of a symphony may require different performing forces (and therefore different score and part layout) than the other movements. The mdiv element may be recursively nested in order to represent music which exhibits this kind of structure. For example, an opera is normally divided into acts, which are in turn divided into scenes.
