The reason is that Roberto Gerhard, born in Valls, province of Tarragona (Catalonia), was friend since his childhood of _Pau Casals_, born in El Vendrell, province of Tarragona and a great connoisseur of Catalan popular music. The tune of "La Mare de Déu" was also used by the well known Catalan musician _Xavier Cugat_, born in Girona (Catalonia), into his song "My shawl".
