Information kindly provided by Jon Stringer and also IUCAT. This "Alia Música" should not be confused with the other group under the direction of Miguel Sánchez.
Track # 3 was titled "launeddas" which is a mistake. Mr Jon Stinger provided the following information:
«Apparently who ever put the liner notes together failed to use the correct Cantiga song title but instead entitled it by the instrument that the performer plays. Launeddas is instrument! I quote from The Oxford Companion to Musical Instruments written and edited by Anthony Baines (1992). "The "reedpipe of Sardina", played mostly for round dances, and very likely a direct surviver of a "divergent double-pipe" of Antiquity.»
