SATB a cappella pieces-easy/not on PML

Hello fellow musicians!
 
Does anyone know of any light hearted/easy SATB or SAB a cappella pieces for contest but doesn't have to be on the PML list? Any feedback would be appreciated!
 
Thank you!

Dear Nicole,
Not sure what the PML list is, but you might enjoy these two easy arrangements of cheerful Scots songs:
http://www.hutchingsmusic.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/jockohazeldean.pdf - SAB, basses have the melody in the first two verses and sopranos in the last verse, some close harmony work
These are free for non-profit use; I publish them on an "honour" system, if you've got a music budget and would usually pay for music then please send me a contribution by Paypal (say $15). Let me know if you think they're right for your choir (I'd also like to know if you don't use them, and why - feedback would be appreciated.)

Dear Nicole,
I know it's not Christmas but have a look and listen to my Christmas carol which I know is being used in a concert this summer.  If you follow the YouTube links it's performed in both SATB and a cappella. http://www.refuse-to-lose.co.uk/pages/ageoldreasonforjoy.htm takes you straight to the page any problems go to www.robinmayhew.co.uk and the link is at the top of the Home Page.  It's fun to sing and I'm told it's a real 'earworm'.

Dear Nicole,
Forgot to say - everything needed for perfomance is available as FREE downloads from The Age Old Reason for Joy page. The SATB score in both portrait and landscape formats, the words and accompaniment.
 
Good luck

Well, I've been flogging "A Winter Ride" (SATB, brief soprano divisi, accomp.), hoping for a premiere.  But your profile says Texas, so maybe not.
 
 
Good luck.
John
