Women's Choir pieces about singing, songs, etc.

Hello all!
I conduct an adult women's chorus and am thinking of doing a program of pieces about singing, (or that mention singing!)
 
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated- from unison to many parts, any accompaniment.  I will post all results!
 
Thank you!

Top of my list would be "One Voice" by Canadian singer/songwriter Ruth Moody.  Elektra has recorded it (iTunes).  The music can be purchased online at http://www.thewailinjennys.com/store/sheet-music/one-voice-sheet-music/
 
Other suggestions would be:

Harp of Wild - Allan Bevan *
Here's to Song- Allistair MacGillivray, arr. Diane Loomer *
Joy - Kathleen Allan (there is also a setting of the same Teasdale poem by John Muelheisen which we haven't sung) *
Lauliku Lapsepoli- Veljo Tormis (translation: The Bard's Childhood) *
Music for a While - Henry Purcell, arr. Gunnar Eriksson, adapted by Maria Gamborg Helbekkmo (recording available by Voci Nobili)
Though Philomela Lost her Love - Thomas Morley - the 3-part madrigal - probably on cpdl.org
What Sweeter Music - Eleanor Daley - This is a Christmas piece *
 
Publisher information for each should be at www.elektra.ca. click on "Repertoire Resources".  And recordings of the ones with asterisks are on iTunes.  I would be happy to answer any questions you have about any of these.
 
Have fun with your theme!
