Table of Correspondences

10 May 1995

This table gives the cell number in the font and a description of the character in that cell. There are 64 notational symbols defined in the font's character space. It includes 21 square-neume symbols, 16 Aquitanian neume symbols, 17 miscellaneous symbols for neumed transcriptions, and 10 symbols for transcription to dot-head notation. Since all these symbols are in one font, they can be intermixed for parallel transcription. "Common practice" refers to common-practice notation.
