5 Songs, Op.38 (Sibelius, Jean)

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 1928 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.

Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP does not assume any sort of legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.

Misc. Notes From the uploader's library. This second hand copy purchased in Paris but originally in New York from Shirmer's provides a handwritten translation in English of the poem. The ink is really smudgy in places so barely legible. The author of the translation is unknown to the uploader (except for the initials at the end : J.R.R.), unless of course, an English version of the song exists, from which this version might have been copied.
