Seeking scores by Cuban composers

Hello! I'm trying to locate scores of choral works by Cuban composers for a research project.  Does anyone have insights into finding or have copies of scores by Roberto Valera, Guido Lopez-Gavilan, Beatriz Corona, or Wilma Alba Cal? I have the few popular things available at Pepper or Sheetmusicplus such as El Guayaboso by Valera. Thank you.

John - I would direct you to Ken Nafziger, professor of music at Eastern Mennonite University in western Virginia - I don't have his contact info, but it should be easy enough to find it on-line - as he and the group he directs in this area, VOCE, have presented a number of works by Cuban composer Jose-Maria Vitier.  I'm sure he can help.
 
Chantez bien!

Earthsongs publishes many Cuban choral works, and they provide great notes and translations. See:
 
and type "Cuba" in the search-box, in the upper right-hand corner of the homepage.

John,
 
Here is the name and website of a Cuban choral director. She recently toured some in the US with her choir. She may be able to help:
