We investigate the canonical quantization of axial and Tkachenko oscillation modes of a vortex lattice in a rotating superfluid. We explore possible links between classical vortex theory and the works of Fetter and Owczarek & Slupski. This investigation may be relevant to the timing and glitch behaviour of neutron stars.
