The ideal content-based musical search engine for large corpora must be both expressive enough to meet the needs of a diverse user base and efﬁcient enough to perform queries in a reasonable amount of time. In this paper, we present such a system, based on an existing advanced natural language search engine. In our design, musically meaningful searching is simply a special case of more general search techniques. This approach has allowed us to create an extremely powerful and fast search engine with minimal effort.
