Welcome to the ALL NEW Public Domain Music Works web site

Pubdomain is an online music library of copyright free music (public domain music) giving the world access to music, without the legal hassles common today. A great deal of music has expired copyrights, but almost no recordings of this music is in the public domain. So that our visitors may listen, re-use, or in any way enjoy music, we aim to record or obtain recordings that have no copyrights.

"There ought to be but one large art warehouse in the world, to which the artist could carry his art-works and from which he could carry away whatever he needed..." - Beethoven
