Actually, not obviously distributed and copyrighted until 1971 - certainly no wide-distribution copy appears in libraries with a lower than 1971 © date, the 1936 © date at Dutch libraries seems to be an inaccurate artifact of the 1936 composition date simply copied into the publication field, and the 1964 field in another library is - interesting.

Misc. Comments

Both Latin and English are used -- i.e. not English as a translation for Latin text.

This work seems to have been first published in 1971 (or 1969?), though it's not entirely clear from available sources.

Full instrumentation from a "Google-cached" copy of a page at the Oxford University Press website, which gives the publication date as March 1969. 2005 page linked above does not list the percussion section in detail.
