The article presents information on the plagiarism and corruption in the examination for the selection of the chapel master for Oaxaca Cathedral. The Mexico City chapelmaster, Antonio de Salazar was appointed to assist the Cabildo to evaluate the entries. This was a chance for Cabildo to modernize its musical establishment. But the selection created much discrepancies due to the differences in chant traditions in Mexico City and Oaxaca. More over Salazar's selection as judge was questioned due to corruption and favoritism though he was good in terms of musical ability. One of the candidates was Salazar's choir boy, which created controversy.
