Public domain recording?

Hey, while I'm on a question spree, let's keep it going.

I'm arranging a fairly large event and was thinking it could be a nice thing to have some very low volume music running in the background; y'know, space filler. Now, we don't have any budget for this to start buying licenses and paying royalties and shit, and the whole thing is just too open and official to even wanna take a miniscule risk of getting into legal trouble.
So yea, basically I'm just looking around to see what's the actual deal with public domain music. If I've understood it correctly it's really only sheet music that's completely free to use, not recordings. But hey, if anyone knows different I'd be glad to hear about it.
