Copyright status of the handwritten note by Phil May:
The Internet Archive scans used as the source for this digital edition of Songs and their Singers also included a handwritten note from Phil May to the Irish baritone Harry Plunket Greene (1865-1936), who had written to May following the publication of Songs and their Singers.
The inclusion of this note with the Internet Archive's 2007 online edition of Songs and their Singers constituted its first publication. Under the terms of the Copyright Act, works not published by 25 July 1997 which had been created by authors who had died more than 50 years before that date entered the Canadian public domain on 1 January 2003.
Phil May's note is therefore part of the Canadian public domain, and it is our pleasure to present a reproduction of the note and a transcription for the instruction and enjoyment of our readers.
