if you are referencing a very specific passage of short notes, then yes, the article would be more appropriate.

so "throughout the score shorts notes should be performed..."
but "at measure 75 the short notes should be performed..."

maybe in Canada our approach to English is slightly different.
The usage is the same here in the US; and I suspect also in Britain. I thought that the "the" might be included or not depending on OCTO.'s answer to Ben's question about whether the short notes were specific to the solo sections.
