musical score copyright

Post by Rich » Tue Jun 04, 2013 5:16 pm

Im looking at doing a new translation and performance of some words and music which was published a musical score which was published in 1911. The composer, librettist and editor died over 70 years ago. is there any reason why this wouldnt be copyright free?
thanks for any suggestions,
Rich
