Romantic Suite, Op.18 (Holbrooke, Joseph)

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 1928 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.

If this relates to the Suite moderne Op.18, that was composed in 1897, and this might be a 1918 revision of that 1897 work.

Joseph Holbrooke: Composer, Critic, and Musical Patriot gives "Op.18a (1890s)" for the Romantic suite, actually (p.263.)

The Romantic Suite Op. 18a and the Grande Suite Moderne, Op. 18b are two entirely distinct compositions. Neither is a revision of the other.
