Panning SSA choir, piano and string quartet

Hi! I got this contemporary classical recording that im trying to mix in Logic. It has 6 tracks of choir (SSA), the piano track and 4 for the string quartet. They were all recorded separately in studio. How should I pan them? Any ideas? I was planning adding quite a lot of reverb to the choir to "send" it to the bottom.

I'm open to any suggestions as I am a complete amateur and the piece I'm mixing is mine (no charging for this!) . Thank you so much!

i suggest you're using appropriate amounts of (different) reverbs for all sources and go with a panorama setting which mimicks the position of all musicians as if they would have performed in a concert (or were recorded together in a large room/hall).

Hi! I understand the thread is old enough. But nevertheless, where are you end up? SATB choir voices are set from left to right from Sopranos to Basses. The width of the panorama depends on the number of singers. Try different panning for the piano to achieve beautiful cohesion with the choir sound. "Sending choir sound to the bottom" usually means an imbalance of voices. I often record soprano alto female choir and prefer that the music was bass-heavy, especially in the low mid range. Below is an example of such a "virtual" choir recorded in the studio with music done from the midi. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vhhZbivYag
