Mexican composer active in the 20th century. His work as a composer, music educator and scholar of Mexican music connected the concert scene with a usually forgotten tradition of popular song and Mexican folklore.

Sy Scholfield quotes "Music Since 1900" by Nicolas Slonimsky (1994), p. 537: "Ponce gave his date of birth as 8 December 1886, but he was in fact born at 11:45 PM on 8 December 1882, and baptized on 12 December 1882."
