1. there are 13C10 ways to pick the 10 sopranos
and so on for the other voices.
Now just multiply all those combinations together.

There is only 1 tenor who will stand next to the basses.
There are 3! ways to arrange the oher tenors, and 4! ways to arrange the basses.
Then there are two ways to arrange the sections: Tenors-basses and basses-tenors.
So, 2*3!*4! ways in all.
