URTEXT EDITION 
This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in the EU (or 20 years ago in Italy, before 1992 in the former USSR). Hence, the edition is public domain in its country of origin or a government publication. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum 'threshold of originality' to qualify for copyright as an 'adaptation'. They may not be public domain elsewhere.

Misc. Comments

This page is a grouping together of two works actually often considered separately and first published separately though with related opus numbers (not as Op.144 No.1 and Op.144 No.2, but as Op.144a and Op.144b (Requiem or "Hebbel" Requiem, so called to distinguish it from his incomplete Op.145a Requiem.)
