This report addresses design issue of query languages for searching, restructuring, and analyzing collections of XML-encoded music scores. We advocate against a direct approach based on XQuery, and propose a more suitable strategy which extracts a structured representation of music notation from score encodings, that can then be manipulated in closed form with dedicated operators. The paper exposes the content model, and describes our implementation on top of a large Digital Score Library (DSL).
