Accessible Baroque Pieces

Hi all,
I'm in search for accessible Baroque period choral pieces, for an upper-level high school choir - preferably pieces that are off the beaten path - things not everyone has heard before. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!  Also, preferrably no more than 6 voice parts.
Thanks,
Andrew

Andrew,
 
Here are performances of four Psalm settings by Giacomo Puccini "senior", the great great grandfather of the more famous opera composer of the same name, late Italian Baroque period. Publisher information, as well as information about other similar Psalm settings, is contained within the video. I have done these very successfully with high school singers and strings.
