Holiday repertoire for children's choir and orchestra

My community children's chorus has been asked to perform with our local symphony orchestra at a holiday concert next December.  I am not familiar with repertoire for childrens choir and orchestra.  I would appreciate any ideas for pieces that are written for children/orchestra or ones that could be adapted.   In addition, if you know of any recordings which have arrangements for children and orchestra I'd love to hear about those too.  Thanks so much for your help!

Kentaro Sato's "Veni Sancte Spiritus" might be good choice (it is SSA). Here are links from his site.
Our choir performed the organ version at a large cathedral, and it was a magnificent experience.
Also, If there is solists available, Josu Elberdin has a wonderful "Maginificat."
