    Welcome to Free at Last – Public Domain Organ Music. I hope you find this information useful and that this will expand your ideas of what is possible with technology.

Web searching. While we might like to think that digitized material can be permanent, web sites do come and go. This listing of web sites has been checked, but a site might be removed for any number of reasons; lack of funds, little traffic, and copyright problems.
When searching for web sites, be creative in your approach. Just typing “organ music” will give you far too many hits and many useless sites.
    This presentation focuses on web sites that offer music freely. There are other sites which require paid membership, or pay-as-you-go.
    A word about copyright. Make sure that you are aware of any copyright restrictions for music that you download and use. The focus here is on material in the public domain, meaning material no longer subject to copyright and freely useable. Be aware of the copyright laws of any server you use. Obviously, not all web servers are in the USA. There are differences in what constitutes public domain between the US, Canada, and the European Union. Don't upload, download, or support the illegal use of copyrighted material. Also, be aware of what constitutes “fair use.”
