I have done a lot of singer songwriter recording in churches.
I have experimented with every array possible on them.
M/S is a good option in a lot of ways but limited in that it can sound meh on instruments unless you use fig 8's or omni m/s.
Here's an omni m/s recording: Rens Heijnis schoeps mode

Here's a close spaced wide cardioid recording: Cassette on location with AD comparison

now I would mix a fig 8 vertical blumlein with a narrowly spaced room pair if I didn't have much time or do a narrowly spaced wide cardioid approach (possibly with a distant pair)
