Looking for chilling, haunting opera music from the public domain

Not to throw a spanner in your works but most recordings of old songs will still retain a copyright (Im thinking specifically of modern recordings of old opera songs/standards). The songs themselves might be free domain but the recordings of those songs will probably be still owned by a company and need a publishing or licensing agreement. I have no idea about old pre-50's original recordings of Opera music. Might just be worth paying a publishing fee.
