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.

Misc. Comments

Incidental music for Emile Verhaeren's "Philip II."

Mentioned in an article on Goossens in the July 1, 1919 Musical Times (" overture and incidental music for a performance of Verhaeren's 'Philip II' at the Court Theatre.") ("The music has since been remodeled as a suite, and will be heard again.") This prelude may be to the suite from the unsuccessful incidental music, not to the original- hard to say. The date 1917 in the bottom right corner of the last page suggests that it was in fact composed in that year?
