Music for Choir and 2+ instruments

Dear Colleagues,
My college choir's final spring concert has recently  been joined with a concert of our two wind ensembles. We already have a  nice piece to do as a combined finale, but I am looking for 1-2 short pieces for choir  that would feature some brass, wind and/or percussionists that we can also do in the program. .
I know there are many things, but as this is a recent development that I wasn't planning, I have to move quickly.  Your help would be appreciated.
Many thanks in advance!

Dear Colleagues,
Thank you for the suggestions so far. However, I should have mentioned that the use of organ is not an option for this concert.  Also, I am looking at a total of no more than 6 minutes, and that is if we do two pieces. Thanks again in advance!

I think the Clausen arrangement of The Water is Wide would work well.  It has parts for horn, clarinet, and cello.

K. Lee Scott has a lovely men's piece called A Vineyard Grows. I don't  have a copy here but it's for TTB or TTBB, flute, oboe and piano. I had no oboist but I had a willing clarinet player so I transposed the part.
