Conrad Susa's Carols & Lullabies - Sp. pronunciation guide?

Songs 2 & 8 have a Catalan pron. guide in the front of the booklet.
Does anyone have a guide for the rest of the songs?
Molto cantabile,

The rest of the movements are traditional Spanish.  the Catalan pronunciations are provided because of the unique dialect.

The Voices Chorale (Central NJ) self-produced a guide for the non-Catalan texts for a concert in 2009.  We provided a CD to the members for self-study.  I've uploaded the tracks as mp3 files into a zip file you can download from googledocs here.  You could create a CD from them or distribute them as is for playback via an ipod, etc....  Let me know if its not clear.

The material I posted above can also be accessed thru an interactive website that enables you to play the pronunciation track while reading the text. Its running off of my home computer, so for security you'll need to login (cnsusa, cnsusa).  Below is an image of a section of the site:
