Some of the early Joseph Haydn Missa Brevis settings are scored for this instrumentation. The Missa Brevis in F Major and the Missa Brevis in B-flat Major (Kleine Orgelmesse) are two good examples.

I also am not sure if I saw this on the list, but the Pergolesi "Magnificat" is a good piece with this instrumentation

Have to disagree with you, Fred. The "Pergolesi" Magnificat (actually composed by Francesco Durante) is scored with viola throughout. Admittedly, the viola doubles the bass line quite a bit and you could probably get along without it, but that would be an arrangement, not the composer's original.
