Copyright date nowhere on score. NLA catalog says [1927], which is what that means- 1927 probably (or from other sources from score? If from a page of score not scanned in I presume would be (1927)). This is PD-US on the evidence.

Misc. Comments

See note in composer category. Also, according to newspaper accounts, performed two preludes and a humoresque of her own (for piano) on 17 Jun. 1925 (and was a Conservatorium student at the time); conceivable that the prelude in D-flat was one of those... (ah. but "prelude" by "Dorothy Albery" turns up several times in papers, the first time as "a charming prelude of quiet harmonies working to a powerful climax", starting perhaps with a 31 May 1927 concert report in the SMH. So 1927-5-30 as first performance, whether or not year of first publication, makes sense.
