Hello everyone in the world of music encoding,

at the moment, I am preparing my dissertation for my M.A.-degree at  
the Goethe-University in Frankfurt, Germany, which I am planning to  
write this year about the possibilities and  
difficulties of editing mensural notation.

Since I have barely no experience in encoding music at all (however,  
the tutorial an the MEI-Website was very helpful to get the first  
steps and to encode a first piece of CMN), I am now wondering, if I  
could find a sample encoding of mensural notation, to get an overview  
on how it is done. I tried encoding out by relating on a sample I  
found at http://www.digital-musicology.at/de-at/mei_mensual.html, but  
I'm not sure, whether I did something wrong or how else the common  
standard is. (If someone is interested: You can find my first attempts  
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/15v9inaose2z8e8/AACXfPru5v3H5fg2cwgNZJFKa?dl=0, all  
comments on them are very welcome!)

I did not find any MN-sample in the sample encodings package, so could  
anyone please send me one?

Yours sincerely,
Daniel Alles
