This work is most likely NOT public domain in either Canada and other countries where the term is life+50 years (like China, Hong Kong, New Zealand 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 1927 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.

  • Loewe wrote this when he was about 19 years old, before he left Germany to come to the United States. It is unclear what the original instrumentation was for, but according to David Jasen in his Tin Pan Alley encyclopedia, the text by Winter was part of the original. So it was for voice and something . . .
  • Went into the public domain in the United States on January 1, 2019
