Death and reputation
Quijano's death in 1871 came 12 years after the death of his more eminent fellow- composer Debali, with whom he collaborated, but, given the facts that he lived longer than Debali in the young Oriental Republic of Uruguay and that Debali spoke little Spanish, these factors served to enhance his reputation.
