Prelude for Violin and Organ (Willner, Arthur)

This work is likely not in the public domain in the US (due to first publication with the required notice after 1927, plus renewal if published before 1964, or "restoration" under the GATT/TRIPS amendments), nor in the EU and those countries where the copyright term is life+70 years. However, it is public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and in other countries (China, Hong Kong, New Zealand) where the copyright term is life+50 years.

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.

Copyright note: Public domain in Canada (assuming a public performance in the composer's lifetime), Copyright by Leo Baeck Institute Archives - Creative Commons Attribution Non-commercial No Derivatives 3.0 for USA and 70pma countries. (In other words, probably PD-CA if records of a performance can be discovered - does law say that one "assumes" a performance or the burden is on the person claiming PD status to find records of one? the latter, I should assume..., limited rights US, EU...)
Looks like autograph copies made (presumably?) by the composer- both are very "clean"- unless he was among the rare composers who got it (right) readable the first time out.
