Berceuse (Tailleferre, Germaine)

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 1924 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

Published as a supplement to Le Monde Musicale in 1913 (not otherwise published until 1924, but this does put it under the 1923 bar.) Composition in the same year as publication apparently confirmed in Germaine Tailleferre: la dame des Six by Hacquard (at least according to Google snippet view?). Tailleferre wrote other berceuses, for piano (1935) and possibly for a vocal suite also.
