Yupper on that

I've used PG81 as live drum OHs (in a pinch), and they were serviceable, but nothing to write home about ... I am not sure if I would want to use them for choral work though.

Along with the other good Shure mic recommendations, you might want to look into the Oktava MC-012s.. a matched pair of these can often be had for $400 or less.
