Classic music for shortfilm projects free?

Ok there's the general perception about classic music that it is free to use for shortfilms etc. Does anybody have personal experiences about this topic. There's just too much noise about it the moment you google it.

I especially want to find out how terms change when a choir is involved. Like in Bach's St. John's Passion #1. Thx.

With classical music, the composition is in the public domain (so long as it was written before 1923), but the performance is not. You'll need to find a performance where the performers chose to release it into the public domain/creative commons (generally not all that hard for well known pieces), or pay a licencing fee.
