Masterwork for 80 voice HS choir

I have an 80 voice advanced high school choir.  I am looking to do a masterwork with them.  I would love suggestions for works that could be done with piano (organ may be an option as well).  I want to expose them to some of the great works for large chorus.

Domine ad adjuvandum me by Padre Martini, or Regina Coeli by Mozart come immediately to mind.  There are many others.

I've done both with my high school kids (and the orchestra). 
We're doing "Regina Coeli" this year and they REALLY loved it.  BTW, Mozart set the Regina Coeli text three times.  The one we did is K. 276.
Other pieces:
Haydn "Te Deum"
Mozart "Te Deum"
Bernstein "Chichester Psalms" (did it last year - kids loved it)
Britten "Rejoice in the Lamb" (doing it in the spring)
Faure "Requiem"

The Vivaldi Gloria comes to mind first.  Other very accessible gems include the Haydn Te Deum (Mozart's is good too, but I prefer Haydn's) and Mozart Regina Coeli.  Just did the Pergolesi (Durante) Magnificat which was very successful.
