    Google gave me this, not sure if you've seen it or not.

    I don't think any of those sites are hi-rez though. Browse through them, see if you like anything. Some have CD quality at least. Don't know about the risk factor either, corrupted files, viruses.

    I missed the high res part. Music in the public domain is so old, though, recorded with primitive equipment by today's standards, I doubt there'd be a difference between 320kbps MP3 and even the highest DSD bitrate. Maybe I'm off base though.

    In the United States, any musical works published before 1922, in addition to those voluntarily placed in public domain, exist in the public domain. In most other countries, music generally enters the public domain in a period of fifty to seventy-five years after the composer's death.

    Music in the public domain doesn't necessarily equate to performances in the public domain.

    Having said that:

    1) Howzabout archive.org?

    2) There's a fellow on AK and Hifihaven who is a pretty serious recordist of serious music -- he's shared some of his efforts on those sites, e.g.,

    I posted about this in an earlier thread.

    Some very good versions of pieces & composers mentioned above

    Good point -- although it's perhaps even more interesting that it's a Vanilla-friendly term :|

    Thanks Tony, this is why I asked. That site had hi bitrate downloads. I was just wondering if there are others out there. It was mentioned on another board that pre 62 jazz is public domain. I would have asked but they don't talk to me there.
