MIRANDA, Ricardo. Tesituras encontradas: canon y musicología en México o tres reflexiones sobre un juego de estampas. An. Inst. Investig. Estét [online]. 2005, vol.27, n.86, pp.95-110. ISSN 0185-1276.

This article discusses the relation between the building up of a musical canon and the practice of musicology in Mexico over the last twenty years. Its starting point is the criticism of a series of printed study-sheets for use in schools which show the zero impact of musicology at the level of general education in this country. The article suggests the need to establish and make available a corpus of the work of the most important Mexican composers via the, recording and edition of their music, while promoting critical studies aimed at identifying the esthetic values of the music in question. In the light of this need, which in other countries has been recognized as one of musicology's normative tasks, the essay criticizes the documentary approach employed in much musicological work and the lack of rigorous methodology underlying much of musical research in Mexico, and calls for the exercise of an informed and up-to-date musicology, embracing a greater critical sense and with greater esthetic; objectivity as regards delimitation of its subject matter.
