Dear Giuliano,

as you know, I'm writing my M.A. thesis on digital editions of  
mensural notation, for which I'm transcribing and encoding a source of  
the 16th century. But that is just one part of my thesis, the other  
part will be a short review on the possibilities and limits of digital  
editions, problems while encoding (and decoding) etc.

For this second part, I would like to ask some questions about the  
work on digital editions: What are the possible uses of machine  
readable music-code? Of course I know, that MEI is still work in  
progress and that many tools are about to be developed, but are there  
any tools yet that are able to analyze a piece of music or to do  
something else with it (beyond displaying it more or less correctly)?

As you are Director of the CHMTL and therefore related to the  
Thesaurus Musicarum Latinarum, I hope you can help me finding some  
answers on the limits that music encoding has today. Maybe you  
encountered unsovable problems during setting up the TML, or problems  
that are solved now? It would really help me with my thesis, if I  
could find all those answers.

With best regards,
