    17th and 18th century music scores were copied and distributed in a manual way. Music historians are interested in
    how the compositions were distributed or in other words,
    who copied the compositions when and where. Such information may also help to determine the composer when a
    piece of unknown origin is found. In this paper, we present
    ongoing work on the development of a software system to
    analyse such documents automatically and to aid the musicologists in their task to register handwritten music scores.
    In particular, we focus on the application and adaptation of
    image processing methods to separate music symbols for
    the identification task from irrelevant elements
