Caroling Book for SSA(A) Choirs

My women's chorus was just asked to do some caroling at a local mall in December. I have plenty of caroling books for SATB (the kind that include a few dozen familiar carols) but can't seem to find one for SSA(A). Does anyone know of one? Thanks.

Hi, I was wondering if you ever did find such a source. I am looking for the same thing. Thank you in advance.

I know of two..http://www.musicroom.com/se/id_no/023158/details.html - we use a lot in our choir, every Christmas the red books come out.
 
I also know of this one http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780193532328.do if  you want something a bit different.
 
I hope that helps.

Thank you, these look good and I will check them out. I'm especially interested in the unaccompanied selections.

Both have a selection of accompanied and unaccompanied songs.  From memory from the red book (its a few months till we start singing from them again!) there is are Deck the Halls (SSAA) Hail Blessed Virgin Mary, God Rest Ye, In Dulci Jubilo, We wish you a Merry Christmas (goes to a high b flat, hope you've got good sopranos!)  I know there is more but I don't have a copy to hand .  I am very fond of that version of Deck the Halls, its not easy but sounds great.  
 
Lots in the World Carol book too, I have a copy of that to hand and the first 7 are unaccompanied.
