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.

A 4-bar excerpt from Havergal Brian’s first opera, which in 1921 was entitled ‘The Grotesques’, and was finally revised as ‘The Tigers’. The excerpt, presumably intended for brass and percussion, is given in two-stave keyboard reduction which for the first three bars matches almost exactly the final piano-vocal score of the opera. The fourth bar is entirely different, with a side-drum rhythm in a new meter. Prior to the rediscovery of the full score of ‘The Tigers’ in 1978, the section culminating in this fanfare was arranged for brass and percussion by Malcolm MacDonald.
