I have been trying to find out who wrote the music and lyrics for all
of the songs on Il Divo's "Ancora" album. (The liner notes are
inconsistent and unclear.)

I've done as much research as I can, and now I need two things:
(1) Confirm that what I have found is indeed correct.
(2) Finish what I couldn't complete.

There are 10 tracks on this album.

2. Isabel
   Music         : Andreas Romdhane, from "Pavane, Opus 50" by Gabriel Fauré

4. Por Ti Seré
   Music                             : Secret Garden's Rolf Løvland
   English lyrics ("You Raise Me Up"): Brendan Graham
   Spanish lyrics ("Por Ti Seré")    : Donato Poveda Lopez

5. Si Tú Me Amas

   Spanish lyric adaptation: Felix Pizarro Amador  [adapted from what?]

6. Hasta Mi Final
   Music                   : Steve Mac, Wayne Anthony Hector
   Spanish lyric adaptation: Rudy Perez  [adapted from what?]

7. Heroe

Regarding "Isabel," it appears that it is an arrangement composed by
Romdhane, based upon the Fauré work.
