can anyone tell me what year the song Prelude no 5 by Heitor Villa-Lobos was originally written. I need the original song year and not an arrangement of it.

    Just looking up "Heitor Villa-Lobos" on Wikipedia would answer your question.

Every source I can find including multiple Wikipedia articles seems to indicate that it was written in 1940. The sources listed out:

Since I can't seem to find anything that offers a different year or disputes 1940 as the year of composition, I'd be inclined to say that this is evidence enough that Villa-Lobos wrote his five preludes, including "Prelude No. 5", in 1940.
