:: Session Notes ::
1 - Session arranged in the church courtyard of a very small village. People in the Pityusan Islands are identified by nickname (apodo) and by a house (Ca) as well as legal name and surname. The priest on these recordings identifies the Caramelles melodies differently from the identifications that contemporary specialist musicians have given them; the latter has been used here.

:: Recording Notes ::
0 - See description of this comic genre in notes to the previous session. This is an unusual example of a song duel with one man singing all three parts -- a comic tour-de-force.
