I've started the game about three times (usually I make it until the second time you speak with Eothas) around level 12-13. 

 

I always end up with the same party

 

Eder - Tank,

Xoti - Priest

Aloth - Wizard

Tekehu - Druid / Chanter

 

Can someone recommend a different party make up?  Ideally I'd like to change up on my current playthrough.  Although I'm not really opposed to starting over a fourth time if the MC is fun enough.  Previous, aborted, runs the MC was a Fate Testerossa monk/druid build, Herald, and Beguiler (current run when I'm losing steam).

Have you tried subbing out Aloth for a Half Wizard/Ranger Maia? She can be a competent spell caster if you build her right. What do you look for in a companion/party member?

Mostly I'm hoping to find another party composition that is reasonably function and does not include the people I described above.  I feel  stuck with, for example, Xoti as a healer...

For healing: Pallegina in any of her class combinations can combine passive AOE healing with single target burst healing. She's also pretty tanky in all those combinations, so she's viable as a tank/healer hybrid.

If you have access to beast of winter, and don't mind lowering the difficulty, you could maybe get away with using Vatnir as your major healer for the latter half of the game.

You could even build him as a chanter/priest, and free up the healer and chanter spots. 

 

With a solid front line (in most cases, that means a melee PC) you can get away with using Maia in place of Aloth.
