Irish Tune from County Derry (Grainger, Percy)

It is very unlikely that this work is public domain in the EU, or in any country where the copyright term is life-plus-70 years. However, it is in the public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and other countries where the term is life-plus-50 years (such as China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide). As this work was first published before 1926 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements to secure statutory copyright with no "restoration" under the GATT amendments, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP does not assume any sort of legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.

Extra Information
Grainger made at least 5 settings of this Irish melody - numbered as 5, 6, 15, 20 and 29 of his British Folk Music Settings. Nos.5 (chorus), 6 (piano) and 15 (2 horns and strings) are basically the same apart from performing forces (32 bars - 33 if one counts the pickup measure) and about 4 minutes in length. No.20 (for wind band) is the same in duration and harmony but it is 64 bars thanks to Grainger's different notation (the eighth-notes of the earlier setting have changed to quarter-notes). In contrast, No.29 (optional wordless chorus, orchestra and pipe-organ, orchestra, or 'elastic scoring') is an altogether different setting about 6 minutes in duration with a much more dissonant harmonization. This item will ultimately have its own page here at IMSLP because it's a different work.
