Symphonietta für Streichinstrumente und Harfe, Op.27 (Graener, Paul)
It is 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 (like 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, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

The score has the following inscription:
Du kamst, du gingst mit leiser Spur, Ein flücht’ger Gast im Erdenland; Woher? Wohin? Wir wissen nur: Aus Gottes Hand in Gottes Hand.
(You came, you went with a light trace, a fleeting guest in the land of the earth; Whence? Whither? We only know: from God's hand into God's hand.)
