What is “Public Domain” and how can I find out if a song is in the Public Domain?

Public Domain is a term used to describe works that are not under copyright, usually because their copyright has expired. In regards to A Cappella Arrangements, you can legally arrange songs in the Public Domain without getting anyone’s permission.
