In a previous message Paul von Hippel states that "The paper by van Egmond and Butler in the latest Music Perception relies on data scanned from the textual notation at the back of Barlow and Morgenstern." The Music Perception article does not rely, however, on these data: it presents a theoretical outline for the application of pitch-class set theory in tonal music. At the latest meeting of the Society of Music Theory and the American Musicological Society, we gave a computer presentation composed of the Music Perception article, which also contained an analysis of the Barlow and Morgenstern themes (using the theoretical constructs developed in that Music Perception article). Presently, we are preparing a manuscript on this topic. Rene Van Egmond (NICI, University of Nijmegen) David Butler (Ohio State University)
