GOMEZ, Antonio, Mexican musician, born in the City of Mexico in 1805; died in Tulancingo in 1876. At the age of eight he studied with Izquierdo and Ginesta, and when scarcely ten years old published several small compositions of his own, which were favorably received. He became leader of the orchestra of Garcia's Italian opera company in 1827. Gomez founded in Mexico a conservatory of music, but abandoned it for want of pecuniary assistance, and the musical library of the cathedral, of which he was appointed director, was arranged by him. In 1854 Gomez became organist of the new cathedral at Tulancingo, but in his latter years sickness prevented him from continuing his labors. Among his compositions are:" La Independencia," for piano, flute, and violoncello; " Miserere," for eight voices and grand orchestra; a Te Deum ; psalms ; vespers ; matins ; and several masses ; all for full orchestra.
