I arranged this quartet for the quartet i play in. Original is from Giacomo Puccini. I transposed it from the original pitch C# minor to C minor. Otherwise we would have 6 sharps for the Bb instruments and 5 B's for the Eb's... A nice original version is:

After a closer look at your arrangement: Very nice layout - this should a joy to play!
But what does the soprano do with the low a's?
Without seeing the score (perhaps there's another workaround): Did you think of transposing the original score up to d-minor? Fairly high in the tenor then, but ....

Thanks for pointing out the problem with the low A's in the soprano part
We haven't played it yet with my quartet so there might still be some problems in the parts...
i transposed some measures, to solve the problem with the low A's. View attachment 232790
I chose the C minor becouse i like the low A's in the Baritone. Ofcourse D minor would have been an option to. If anyone would prefer it in D minor i can always change that. Transposing is not a lot of work in Finale...
