I Made an Arrangement of a Classical Work that is in the Public Domain. Should I Register it as Classical?

No - arrangements are not considered new, original classical songs.

Arrangements are not eligible to be registered as classical pieces, even if the arrangement is of a classical song in the public domain. You should choose "Non-Classical" when adding these works, and also should indicate that they are in the public domain when entering the arrangement as a song within your Songtrust account.
