Bardengesang, Op.55 (Strauss, Richard)
It is unlikely that this work is public domain in the EU, or in any country where the copyright term is life-plus-70 years. However, it is in the public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and other countries where the term is life-plus-50 years (like China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide). As this work was first published before 1923 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements to secure statutory copyright, it is almost certainly public domain in the USA as well.

Grove Music lists this as simply "male chorus", but in the score this is divided into at least 3 choruses, of which the at least the first divides into two tenors and two basses, so fairly large numbers would be needed.
