Information from owned CD. Many Cantigas are "first-recording". Jorge Salazar writes regarding the two catalog numbers:
DSI 0105 is the English language release & DS 0110 is the Spanish language release; the musical content is identical, both released in 1994, but the tracks are grouped differently. The latter includes extensive notes in Spanish for each of the selections.
