This work is most likely NOT public domain in either Canada and other countries where the term is life+50 years (like China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide), or the EU and in countries where the copyright term is life+70 years. However, as this work was first published before 1923 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements, it is almost certainly public domain in the USA and is therefore hosted on an American server for US residents only.

Misc. Comments

According to Worldcat, the full orchestra/vocal/chorus score of Suor Angelica was not printed until 1927 (that of Il Tabarro came out in 1918, I think.) (yes, I know this citation of a reprint of the same score says 1980, c 1918).) - Schissel

Schickling's catalog trumps Worldcat, which is very much GIGO (Garbage in - Garbage out). The Full score was first issued in 1919, Plate 117711. It's also reprinted an presently on sale from Kalmus (along with the parts).
