Not really. AFAIK, your code already is Oberon-2. So I would start with 

If I understand the task correctly you need c to get TeX execute your 
program and understand MusicXML directly. To execute c inside TeX might 
have been a good idea 20 years ago, today llvm and WebAssembly would do 
this task much better IMHO.
