See my LV catalogue page for a current, if less-organised, listing. All these recordings are free to download, and except where marked, are public domain in the US. As far as I know they are all in the UK public domain, and probably for Europe — most are public domain globally. (However, check with the copyright laws of your own country if you are unsure.)
