The Birds of Rhiannon, Op.87 (Holbrooke, Joseph)

This work is likely not in the public domain in the US (due to first publication with the required notice after 1922, plus renewal or "restoration" under the GATT/TRIPS amendments), nor in the EU and those countries where the copyright term is life+70 years. However, it is public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and in other countries (China, Japan, S. Korea) where the copyright term is life+50 years.

Copyright
Misc. Notes Score has no plate no. and is ambiguous about opus no. WorldCat estimates publication date as 1920, which is too early. Cover artwork is probably by Myrrha Bantock (1906–1992)(?). Paxton published its own arrangement for solo piano by Edric Cundell in 1926 (see: Catalog of Copyright Entries, 1926).

In the USA this work is most likely in the public domain because it was published without a compliant copyright notice, no renewal was found after a thorough search of the Catalog of Copyright Entries, or it was either ineligible for "restoration" under GATT/TRIPs and/or no record of an NIE filing was found in the online records of the US Copyright Office.
