Abc files derived from **kern files

There are over 100,000 music files encoded in **kern data format. Many of these are accessible from the Kern Scores web site and here. **kern files notate music using the Humdrum representation described in this document. Like abc music notation, the **kern music notation is plain ascii text and any text editor can be used to create and edit these files.

Humdrum and **kern music notation were developed by David Huron. Humdrum is a toolkit designed for music research. Extensive documentation on this system may be found in this introduction and in Humdrum -extras.

Here are several abc files that I created using Craig Sapp's hum2abc.
