Examples: 1 vocal score (6, 43 p.) [text is in a separately numbered sequence]
1 vocal score (xi, 43 p.) [text is in a separately lettered sequence]
1 vocal score (43 p.) [text is included in the number sequence of the music]
» Page numbering for a work for one instrument for which there are pages of text along with music will include the numbering for the pages of text when they are in the numbering sequence for the music
Examples: 43 p. of music [one sequence of numbering: p. 1-6 is text, 7-43 is music]
» Page numbering for a work for one instrument for which there are pages of text along with music will not include the numbering for the pages of text when they are in a numbered or lettered sequence separate from the numbering for the music; the text is described as "p." or "leaves"; the music as "p. of music" or "leaves of music"
Examples: 6 p., 43 p. of music [two sequences of numbering: p. 1-6 is text; p. 1-43 is music]
xi p., 43 p. of music [two sequences of numbering: p. i-xi is text; p. 1-43 is music]

Miniature scores
Applying the term "miniature" is not dependent on height, but the function of the score. Rule 5.5B1, footnote 1 gives the definition of miniature score as a score reduced in size and not intended primarily for performance. The definition found in App. D of AACR2r, is a musical scores not primarily intended for performance, with the notation and/or text reduced in size.

Unusual situations
How do you describe a score in the 300 field when the score is in a cover that is 28 cm high, but the music is to be played horizontally, so it is 21 x 28 cm:      



Jay Weitz's answer:
The implication of AACR2 2.5D1 (in reference back from 5.5D) is that the height is the measurement of the binding (that is, the spine), so that would be the determining factor. If the item is bound along the 28 cm. side, the dimension in 300 subfield would be 28 cm. If the item is bound along the 21 cm. side, the dimension would be 21 x 28 cm., according to Rule 2.5D2. Guess it doesn't really matter which way the title reads.
Binding is one size; music is larger but folded to size of binding

1 score (15 p.) ; 43 cm. folded to 28 cm. + a 63 parts ; 28 cm.
When the unfolded dimensions are expressed using the "height X width" convention, that format should be carried through for the folded dimensions as well to give a sense of how the resource is folded. (Thanks to Jay Weitz for this explanation)
