This document, the "NEUMES Transcription Primer," is intended to provide chant musicologists and other interested scholars the tools and information required to both create and interpret transcriptions of western (i.e., Latin) medieval chant in NEUMES encoding. This primer outlines and describes the elements of a chant transcription, and provides examples of NEUMES character data and NeumesXML metadata alongside a sample transcription of the gradual verse "Dextera domini."
