Mass in Honor of St. Catherine, Op.55 (Becker, René Louis)

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.

Misc. Comments

Op. 55a is the version for SSA, Op. 55b that for men (TTB). Op. 55c is SAB. A version for SATB, marked merely as Op. 55, exists in the composer's manuscripts, but was apparently not published. The dedication suggests that op. 55a was the original version.
