This work is likely not in the public domain in the US (due to first publication with the required notice after 1925, plus renewal or "restoration" under the GATT/TRIPS amendments), nor in the EU and those countries where the copyright term is life+70 years. However, it is public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and in other countries (China, Hong Kong, New Zealand) where the copyright term is life+50 years.

Eisler did not assign an opus number to the film itself, but in addition to these 3 songs, he published a suite of orchestral excerpts from it as his Op.26. Furthermore, it's unclear what the third song in Op.27 is.
Also (originally?) for voice and ensemble.
