Secular Choral/Organ works

I need some suggestions for SECULAR SATB choral/organ works of easy/medium difficulty for the choir and about 15-35 minutes duration.  Does such a thing exist?

L.H.,
 
Here's a suggestion, albeit with cello octet in addition to organ.
 
TAYLOR, Nestor: So fades a summer cloud away (Keyboard/Choral Score) 
ECS Publishing #6489,  (MS solo, SATB [divisi], cello octet, organ),  $10.75
 
TAYLOR, Nestor: So fades a summer cloud away (Full score), 
ECS Publishing #6487,  (MS solo, SATB [divisi], cello octet, organ), ,  $73.45
 
TAYLOR, Nestor: So fades a summer cloud away (Cello parts),  ECS Publishing #6488,  
(MS solo, SATB [divisi], cello octet, organ), $92.35
 
I suggest you let the publisher know if you program it and end up with a good demo recording as they have yet to release this title.

Richard rodney Bennett: The Glory and the Dream - a 30-minute work for choir and organ. Not easy for either, but worth the effort. Novello/Chester. Wordsworth poem.

Also, Persichetti: Celebrations - originally for wind band, it works very effectively with organ, especially if you add the percussion parts.

Contact David Hamilton - dhbmusic.co.nz - he's a New Zealand composer with many choral compositions, both sacred and secular. He writes for SATB, men's voices, women's voices; I find his music very approachable, and sing-able.
