SSA and guitar

Dear friends,
 
I would like to program a concerrt with my SSA choir (15 singers) and guitar. I've no music in my library for this setting.
All good ideas are welcome!

I know of a two Gypsy songs for treble voices that use guitar accompaniment.  They are published by Earthsongs in the USA:  earthsongschoralmusic.com
 
The two songs are "Jarba, Mare Jarba" and "Erdo Szelen Satoroznak"   There are youtube videos available of each song as well.  The links to the youtube videos are given below:

Hi Rudy!
Check out Francisco Nuñez' Three Lullabies published by Boosey and Hawkes.  "Crio me mi madre" in particular is really beautiful.  Hope you are well!

Hi Rudy,
 
I have an SSA piece with cello, guitar and castanets set to Edgar Allan Poe's poem Eldorado that might work for your group.  If you'd like to receive a sample copy via e-mail please feel free to contact me.

Rudy,
 
Please consider my unpublished piece "There Is a Name" (dedication piece for the New England Holocaust Memorial, Boston) - (English - text by Joseph H. Albeck) - SA chorus & guitar - 1995. The words may be region-specific, but so what. The Holocaust transcends borders and cultures. I will be happy to send a perusal PDF to you and a synthesized mp3 if you want, just ask. If you have the free Scorch plugin from Sibelius installed you can view and hear the score instantly at this URL: http://www.stanleymhoffman.com/There.htm. This piece is available for sale from my website http://www.stanleymhoffman.com/uwp.htm, and through one of my distributors, http://www.oySongs.com.
 
Thank you for your consideration.

I have a work that is scored for SSA, guitar (or harp or piano), and French Horn that is based on the Elziabeth Barrett Browning Sonnets from the Portugese XXVI poem "I Lived with Visions". Let me know if you would like to see a perusal copy.
