What does "more hispano" mean?

I guess what I really need to know is, does that mean that the pieces
with these titles by Victoria that you publish are different from the
ones with the same titles by other publishers, or are they the same
piece? >>

112A is on the Spanish Vexilla regis tune
113A is on the Spanish Pange lingua tune
Victoria also wrote settings of these two Hymns on the Roman plainchant
melody: these are not published by Mapa Mundi.

Guerrero: 137A is Vexilla regis "more hispano"
Guerrero: 139A is Pange lingua "more hispano"

I hope this clarifies the situation for you.
