Tell me your favorite double chorus works

Good morning,
 
I have just been appointed director of a choral program where three choruses traditionally share concerts.  I would like to find a few double and even triple choral works to program.  Of course the Vaughan Williams g-minor mass is already on the list.
 
I look forward to seeing what you send along.
(=: CHEERS :=) to all, Robert

Thank you everyone!  I am overwhelmed by the response to my request.  I have been compiling all the pieces you have sent and have located a few  on my own.  The resulting list is 10 pages and counting. I could envision this becoming a useful resource for any choral director looking to program works for double chorus and would like to find the best way to distribute it to you all.

 Besides all the great suggestions so far, I'd offer my "Holy, Holy, Holy Is the Lord God of Hosts."   It sets an amalgam from 4 psalms (e.g. "the Lord is King; he is robed in majesty" and "the heavens are telling...") for two SATB choirs a cappella.  Well received when premiered at the Helena, Montana Choral Week in June 2008, there's a studio-style demo recording as well as a viewable score at the link above.  You might also check out William Hawley's Miserere.  chris hoh
