It should be kept in mind that Microsoft Excel reads MusicXML: the music 
can be transformed into a series of figures in Excel, which can be 
interrogated using the whole power of the spreadsheat. The page 
http://www.plm.paris-sorbonne.fr/spip.php?rubrique188 provides an 
example of an Excel set of macros allowing the description of monodies; 
there used to be a routine for the extraction of the Excel data from 
MusicXML files, but this seems missing on the page at this point.

The site http://www.psautiers.org/ proposes a free depository of music, 
where the files, recorded in MusicXML, can be read in music notation and 
searched on the basis of melodic patterns (ISMLP now offers a similar 
search function).

The project NEUMA (http://www.neuma.fr/) aims at uniting projects such 
as that of psautiers.org. Unless I am mistaken, it proposes the 
possibility of melodic search based not only on the identity of melodic 
successions, but also on similitudes.
