SPRING music for a community chorus

I direct a 25-voice chorus of senior citizens, and am looking for some good "spring" themed pieces, SAB or SATB, moderate difficulty.Any ideas?

Hi Will,
Please listen to the vocal/instrumental recording of my song "The Tree of Life" on the home page of my website www.AmericasSongwriter.com. This is a song of hope and renewal, very fitting for a spring-themed concert. I have a beautiful SATB arrangement (not difficult) available free of charge.
Best wishes,
Hank Fellows

Hello Will,
 
Here is "Spring" from my suite "The Five Seasons" on the poetry of Vermont poet James Hayford. Spring is represented here by Hayford's The Apple Tree in Bloom. It is sung here by a community choir with a nice mix of young and older singers. It's in 'chorale' style – slightly more complex than a straight forward hymn – with a descant, piano and optional flute accompaniment. I'd be pleased to send along a PDF perusal score. PDFs & printed copies available. 
 
Regards,
 
Donald

Hello Will,
 
John Rutter's For the Beauty of the Earth is not too difficult and is appealing both to singers and audience.
 
Dvorak's Slender Young Birch from Songs of Nature might be a bit more challenging.
 
Warm regards,
Kurt Sauer

I have a set of three pieces on Irish poems. One of them, "The Daisies," is especially suitable for spring.

Mark Hayes' arrangement of "Summertime" is beautiful but a little tough. The Mac Huff arrangement is a little easier. Also, "My Favorite Things" arranged by Mac Huff is very do-able for a senior-aged choir and always a favorite. Seems both of these would be familiar to your group. : )
