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.

Misc. Comments

HWV number taken from Bärenreiter detailed notes (Serie IV: Instrumentalmusik, Band 7). It conflicts with other sources where HWV 479 is said to be an Allemande in B minor. It seems to be Air à 2 Claviers, HWV 470 (see RISM 800159836).
