Serenade for String Quartet, Op.61 (Jaques-Dalcroze, Emile)
It is 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 (like 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, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

Multiple errors discovered in the parts, many of them non-obvious and fatal to ensemble thanks to the composer’s parsimony with time signatures.
Mvt. I Cello, rehearsal no. 16 “con sourdine” could be spurious.
Mvt. II Viola, 2 measures before 18, dotted quarter rest(?) missing.
2 before 20, “otez sourdine” must be spurious.
Cello, 5, first measure of rest has 3 beats, second measure 2.
Mvt. V Violin, 2 “sourdine” for Violin 2 alone?
Cello, 4, first 2 notes should be eighths.
Mvt. VI Violin 1, 3rd measure of 6, first rest should be eighth.
4th of 8, first note should be eighth.
7th of 26, eighth rest missing.
-- Viola, 5th of 3, measure has 2 quarters.
5th of 9, quarter rest missing (end of measure?).
24, eighth rest missing (end of measure?).
3rd of 24, eighth rest missing (end of measure?).
5th of 25, spurious slur.
