Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis (Vaughan Williams, Ralph)
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 1923 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.

From the uploader's library. [Note: I would surmise the rest cannot be added, but the fact a 2 Piano version was imagined for such a "non-pianistic" work, with RVW's approval or sanction, is interesting, which is why I'm adding the first 2 pp.]
