Try these sites for public domain sheet music.

Here is a selection of sites I've found which may be helpful in making Ocarina sheet music or tabs:

International Music Score Library Project

http://imslp.org/


The Mutopia Project

http://www.mutopiaproject.org/

Choral Public Domain Library

http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

Werner Icking Music Archive

http://icking-music-archive.org/index.php

Musopen Public Domain Sheet music

Addendum:  I'm starting to go thru Karl's teriffic book, 300 Celtic Folksongs for Mountain Ocarinas.  Thanks to the beginner curriculum, I'm getting better at working out rhythm patterns, but if I don't get a particular pattern or want to check myself, I'll go to the above site to see if I can find an appropriate midi file.  If I don't find the right midi file at the above site or elsewhere, I've been copying the music from Karl's book (or other music I'm interested in) into a Finale Notepad file (you can use Finale Notepad to write music and play back what you wrote).  Finale has free Reader software http://www.finalemusic.com/Reader/Default.aspx that will read and play files written in the Finale family of products.  Notepad http://www.finalemusic.com/NotePad/Default.aspx, their bare bones music software, used to be free, but now costs $10.  Since I'm going thru the trouble, I figure I might as well share the info, so I set up my own page:  http://sites.google.com/site/ocarinastuff/

Hey! I just discovered your site. I didn't thought it could be possible to play Satie's music on the ocarina. Interesting... because I love it.
