The <opus> element

Parent element: <opus>

The <opus> element is the root element of a MusicXML opus. Each opus is made up of a series of <score>, <opus-link>, and/or nested <opus> elements. Future versions may include more metadata elements. In this version, we just include the title of the opus.

Name Type Required? Description
version token No The version attribute was added in Version 2.0 for opus documents. It provides an easier way to get version information than through the MusicXML public ID. The default value is 1.0 to make it possible for programs that handle later versions to distinguish earlier version files reliably. Programs that write MusicXML 2.0 or later opus files should set this attribute.


This element is used in the following examples:
