While I don't have a direct answer, could it be because in Chronicles and
Ezra-Nehemiah the reference is specifically to a class of Temple personnel,
while in other places it refers to palace singers? There is, by the way, one
place where Chron. uses "$arim Ve$arot" - in telling of Jeremiah's lament
for Josiah in 2 Chron. 35:25.
