Lyrics/music to Hymn to St. James?

Does anyone have or know where I can get the lyrics--or better still, the sheet music--to the Hymn to St. James that the cantor sings during the swinging of the Botafumeiro in the Cathedral in Santiago? We would like to sing it in our parish--St. James, by the way--when our new Bishop comes. Minus the Botafumeiro, of course!

I understand that the Hymn to St. James was composed during the holy year 1920, and that the lyrics were written by a local doctor, Barcia Caballero, and the music composed by M. Soler, the maestro of the Cathedral Chapel.

Any thoughts?

Thank you!
P.S. I've been back from the Camino for two months now...I'm working on some post-Camino thoughts and learnings to my blog, CaminoJoe.com, but if any of you are going to be setting off on your pilgrimage shortly, I invite you to take a look...you might find it helpful. Be sure to scroll down to the start...

Hello. You do realize that you may get a lot of email out of this? Is it possibly posted someplace on the web? That way you could avoid the tons of people who suddenly appear hoping to get it.

Of course, I searched the web already. There are plenty of videos of it--plus I was there and recorded my own--but I couldn't find the written score on the web.
And so far there's only 2 responses...

I would also love a copy if it can be posted here somehow to save @JohnnieWalker responding individually.

I think KL meant Johnnie Walker would get a lot of email requests...I was thinking the same thing because I REALLY wanted to email him saying me, too, please
edit...but posting it online may violate copyright...

Copyright is held by the Cathedral of Santiago. I can't see any breach in downloading the score from this website. Happy playing and singing. The metronome setting of 50 should be largely ignored imho!

@SYates and @JohhnieWalker, hi and only wanted to say:

"By your hairs will you know them"

But I think someone got there before me.

Here you go:

Lyrics: http://elcancionerocatolico.blogspot.cz/2015/07/himno-al-apostol-santiago-musicamanuel.html

Happy singing, SY

PS There is a good chance that it is out of copyright, as it was created by https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juan_Barcia_Caballero and he is dead since more than 70 years (the usual length of copyright).
Miss Yates: You are the best resource for all things Camino! Thank you!!!!
