Thanks for all the replies!

I should have noted that I have done a fair bit of recording and have a Zoom H6, which is a nifty bit of equipment that can function as both a standalone recorder and an audio interface with 6 inputs (an XY stereo pair and 4 XLR inputs with phantom power).

I'm hoping to do something similar to Tim Eriksen's Soul of the January Hills, a very simple setup in a nice space with good natural acoustics and reverb.

I've considered the Rode NT1A, as the aforementioned album used a Rode stereo mic, but I've heard mixed review about the NT1A. Again, though, it's tough to know what to think, because most people aren't using it in the same situation I would.
