Since this work was first published after 1922 with the prescribed copyright notice, it is unlikely that this work is public domain in the USA. However, it is in the public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted), the EU, and in those countries where the copyright term is life+70 years or less.
Composer's manuscript (holograph), n.d.
Original images: 300dpi color jpg files approx. 4100 by 3260 pixels.
The score is missing pages 23 and 24 (the obverse and reverse of the same page). Page 25 was largely marked out by Paine so it is possible that the two missing pages contained material Paine decided to leave out.
The score is in the collection of the Houghton Library and can be found here.
