Glockenspiel part from Viva la libertad, del "Neoenciclopedista"

5 minutes
World music

In the late sixties I saw an ad in the Mexican newspaper Exc�lsior for a composition contest. They asked for a small piece, which could either be a song or a march related to the theme of the Mexican Independence, to be presented as a piano reduction. So I chose the latter and sent it off under the pseudonym "El Neoenciclopedista," The Neo-Encyclopedic. Much later I was surprised to receive an invitation to a ceremony at the Masonic lodge Muy Respetable y Gran Logia del Valle de M�xico, and, once I was there, I learned that it was about this contest. There were military bands playing in the vestibule of the lodge, and then, the winners were announced. I was not among them. How could I if I did not even know that a march had to be in 4/4 or 2/4 and not in a 3/4 beat as I presented it! Since the piece would not work as a march, I present it now under the title: Viva la libertad, del "Neoenciclopedista."

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
