Introduction

Musical Instrumentation and Voice Code Sources contains a list of standard musical instrumentation and voice code and term sources and assigns a code to each list. The purpose of this list is to enable the source of a medium of performance code or term in metadata records to be identified to enable interpretation.  For code assignment, general structure, usage, and maintenance guidelines see Source Codes for Vocabularies, Rules, and Schemes.

Arrangement of the List

Entries in the list are arranged in alphabetical order by the code and consist of the source code followed by the bibliographic citation for the source documentation. The citations are linked to the online source for some codes.

Code Structure

Each code consists of a maximum of 12 lowercase alphabetic characters. Possible additions to codes are described in Source Codes.
