Copyright Law is similar to plagiarism laws.
If one copies verbatim or indeed copies a rif etc then royalties will become payable on receipts of the sales. If the copies are given away, as long as the original artist is mentioned on the label, there is no royalty issue, as one has only to pay royalties on profits made when performing for gain or selling other peoples work.
As it is a gift, a lawyer would have a problem proving "gain". In this instance I should think it courteous to contact the composer but not necessary.

This is from an experience thrust upon me when I was a company and I made inquiries, through my brief, on just the same matter.

Hope that puts your mind at rest.
