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?
