Hello --

I've read all the comments on this page, very interesting!

I fell in love with this song when I heard it on a haunting remake of Thomas Hardy's "Tess of the D'Urbevilles" and can't get it out of my mind since.

I'm a young female musician and have worked on a beautiful version that I would love to share but does anyone know if this song is considered Public Domain? I'm just a young starving artist :) trying to make my way and I fear that if I put my version on the internet or sample it in a song I could be sued. I assume it is P.D. but my lack of expertise in this area leaves me stumped.

Thank you SOO much for reading this -- please, if you do know send me an email at -- once again, THANK YOU!
