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

These are NOT 'Northern Folk Songs'! Reid has "published" (reprinted) the piano arrangements by Palmgren of his older songs for choir a cappella.

This compilation is the 2nd book containing the songs:

Elegi (mixed choir, text by Selim Sorthan)
Säv, säv, susa (male choir, text by Gustav Fröding)
Marjatan laulu (male choir, text by Eino Leino)
Humoreski (male choir, text "Jo tulen kotihin" by Kanteletar, collection of folk poetry)

The 1st book publ. by Reid contains the arrangements of songs:

Nuku, nuku nurmen alla (male choir, text by Antti Rytkönen)
Hiiden orjien laulu (male choir, text by Karl G. Larson)
Sjöfararen vid milan (male choir, text by G. Fröding)
Hiihtäjän virsi (male choir, text by E. Leino)

The 1st edition was by Lindgren with the title 'Sovitelmia kuorolauluista' vols. 1 & 2
