Forest Fantasies (Carroll, Walter)

It is very 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 (such as 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 with no "restoration" under the GATT amendments, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP does not assume any sort of legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.

Misc. Comments

‘Forest Fantasies,’ woven from the mysteries of fairyland, were inspired partly by the reading of Edmund Spenser’s poems, and other elfin lore, but mainly by the memories of a lovely woodland glade nestling in a quiet corner of Galloway. As tone-pictures they resemble ‘Sea Idylls’ in texture, though less advanced in difficulty. WALTER CARROLL
