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

The partsong was believed to be a sketch when first published in 1961, in a completion by Fritz Racek (1911-1975). It was also published in a fragmentary state when it appeared in Serie III, Band 4 of the Neue Schubert-Ausgabe, in 1974. A complete version of the piece was discovered in 1977 and issued by Bärenreiter-Verlag a year later, edited by Walther Dürr in a "Preprint from: Franz Schubert, Neue Ausgabe sämtlicher Werke, published by the Internationale Schubert-Gesselschaft, Series VIII, Supplement."
