    Anyone know where I can find a good quality O Magnum for treble voices other than the Gerald Near? I have a small women's choir that can handle 2 or 3 parts.

    Darn—I was going to suggest the Near. It's pretty cool!
  • The trebles in our choir have sung this setting by John Brackenborough, and I quite like it:

    I'm with barliatone: we've done the Brackenborough and it's a fine piece for SSA. If you can muster 4 parts, this one is a good one to work on and perform if slightly more contrapuntal. The Victoria with 4 parts has too wide a tessitura for successful transposing to women's voices.
