Hello Din, and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum.

Try these if you want to suspend them from above.

On stands, you can use pretty much any good cardioid. The most amazing bargain I've seen is for the MCA SP-1. http://www.pssl.com/Search?q=SP-1&x=0&y=0&by=s

Three rows and 40 people. You'd need 3 maybe 4 mics. These mics are about the size of a standard flashlight. You'd need good sturdy stands that could reach high enough, depending on the specifics.

Ty knows WAY more than I could ever even imagine about audio, but I'm starting to get into the realm of audio recording and am about to invest in microphones for a similar purpose. Since I started filming some local school concerts, I have decided to upgrade my audio kit from a Sony PCM-d50 up to real microphones hooked up to a mixer by my cameras. I thought I would share what I'm looking into for recording band, orchestra, and choral concerts in an auditorium.

The Oktava MC012 microphone has gotten some good reviews as a powerful performer. I'm looking into getting a stereo pair of MC012s and mounting them on top of a Manfrotto 004BAC light stand. Some extra height in a stand might be nice, but 13' seems like it will be good enough to start with and it won't break the bank.

Anyway, I hope that might help you a little in your endeavor! Best of luck to you.
