Repertoire for SATB Choir, violin and viola

I have two wonderful string players in the mixed ensemble that I would like to feature on our Spring tour.  Do you have any repertoire suggestions for SATB choir, violin and viola?  The work can be with or without keyboard.
Thanks in advance for your wisdom!

Are you looking for both vioin and viola in the same piece, or can they be separate?

 I have a similar need -- rep for SATB and solo violin.  Any suggestions?

 I don't know of any works for choir specifically written with both instruments, but with violin, look at Whitacre's Five Hebrew Songs for SATB chorus, violin and piano.  Have you checked the Musica database, by the way?  They have search functions that should be able to narrow down what you are looking for.

A few years ago,  the St. Olaf  choir toured with an arrangement of Cantique de Jean Racine with a viola part that was really fine; I thinl I have seen it in print since at either Morningstar Music or Augsburg Fortress...

For a piece with SATB and viola, go here to listen to excerpts from my Eser Makot (Ten Plagues) for SATB soloists, choir and viola (2008):

For choir and viola, may I suggest this setting of the opening of St John's gospel by my wife, Helen Williams?
The text is from William Tyndale's translation.
