Hello everyone!
I am asking for ideas/selections for repertoire that might fit the following criteria:

-Extended work for Chamber Choir with Chamber Orchestra/Instrumental Ensemble
-Moderate difficulty at most; Length 25-35 min give or take.
-Choir: SATB with/without divisi
- Classical to Present re: time period
- Sacred or Secular text
-Orchestra will be made up of all professional musicians. Also, piano and three manual pipe organ are available at venue where concert will take place and can be used in instrumentation.
- Choir will consist of professional singers and skilled amateurs.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions. Let me know if you need any clarification on the above.

Ryan PryslakThanks everyone for the ideas! Just to keep it flowing- any more ideas from 19th, 20th centuries and beyond? Maybe not frequently performed gems?

Representing their second Classical Movements tour, the girls of Young Adelaide Voices treble choir completed a very successful tour of Munich, Salzburg, Vienna, and Bratislava. With festival performances in Salzburg, including in the legendary Groβer Saal of the Mozarteum, and in Bratislava, where in addition to multiple performances the choir came home with three gold medals, the girls also enjoyed impromptu pop-up performances in each city, as a chance to hone their repertoire and delight the locals and tourists who happened upon them. Other high points include a post-Mass performance in Munich’s famous Frauenkirche, a concert in the atrium of Vienna’s high-tech Haus der Muisk, and a custom tour of the salt mines of Hallstatt outside of Salzburg.
