xorrecord: refuses to burn more than one .wav to an audio CD

xorrecord refuses to burn my wav files to CD. Here, is the command, more or less how I used to do it in cdrecord:
cdrecord \
 -v -audio \
 -dao \
 dev=/dev/sr1 \
 -speed=4 -pad \
 -eject \
There are around twenty wav files, whose file names are all in the form such that the "??.wav" will include them.

How I am tryin to do this with xorriso:
xorrecord \
 -v \
 -dao \
 dev=/dev/sr1 \
 -speed=4 -padsize=300k \
 -eject \
The error message:
xorriso 1.4.6 : RockRidge filesystem manipulator, libburnia project.

xorriso : FAILURE : -as cdrskin: Surplus track source '02.wav'
xorriso : NOTE : First and only track source is '01.wav'
xorriso : NOTE : Giving up for -eject whole -dev ''
xorriso : FAILURE : -as cdrskin: Job could not be performed properly.
xorriso : aborting : -abort_on 'FAILURE' encountered 'FAILURE'
To which my immediate thought was "Say what? Are you kidding?"

Question one: does this program actually burn audio CDs?

Question two: save for making one single track of 72 minutes in length, how does this program put more than one song on a CD?

No, it doesn't. Use wodim or cdrskin.

Hi, says:
"Note that xorriso does not write audio CDs and that it does not
produce UDF filesystems which are specified for official video DVD or BD."

If it not already had raised protest over your multiple tracks, it would
have objected option -audio:
  xorriso : FAILURE : -as cdrecord: Option -audio not supported.
xorriso is thoroughly specialized on data recording by ISO 9660.
In this context it makes few sense to record more than one track in
a session. Further the multi-session emulation on overwritable optical
media or in data files works only with ISO 9660 filesystems.

As said by AwesomeMachine, the programs wodim and cdrskin do audio.
Not to forget cdrecord, which defined the common option interface that
also controls wodim, cdrskin, and (for data only) xorrecord.
Then there is still cdrdao, which gets controlled by a .toc or .cue file.

Have a nice day
