This “urtext” or “scholarly” (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in Germany and thus is public domain in its country of origin. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum ‘threshold of originality’ to qualify for copyright as an ‘adaptation’. It may not be public domain elsewhere, however. More information about this can be found here.

NMA report (German)
All Music Guide
Most of the choral movements have solos for each voice part; there are also several movements for soprano solo voice.
Partially published as "Herr auf den wir schauen etc", cantata (a potpourri containing portions of the Vespers and other works by Mozart) by Breitkopf around 1820. Then published, in an arrangement published in 1828 (according to Eisen, 2007), as "VI Psalmen"... (identity with K 321 confirmed by libraries containing this) by Artaria. Diabelli in 1833 may have been the first to publish the full score (assuming they did so and that this didn't wait until decades later - either Breitkopf or perhaps, as in some cases, Richault somewhat earlier.)
