Sorry, should have said I was in my twenties in the 80's
You can also try: Charlotte  Church , Sissel and Jonathan Antoine too.
Jonathan and Charlotte Jaconelli were on BGT in 2012, Simon Cowell was not impressed when they entered the stage. Then they started to sing and he was gob smacked by Jonathans voice
Susan Boyle and  Amira Willighagen are good too

I enjoy that too and I am often looking for more of this kind of music. Do you have any artists or albums to recommend? There is something special about an excellent voice accompanied by acoustic instruments. Has your taste always been exclusively inclined this way or has it frozen to this state somewhere along your path?

Have you given Dodecahedron - Kwintessens a fair chance though?

You can try:
Giorgia Fumanti
"Giorgia Fumanti is an Italian soprano, composer, producer and arranger now based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Her music is best compared to that of Andrea Bocelli, Sarah Brightman and Enya. Wikipedia"   "From my heart" is my favourite Giorgia Fumanti cd.
Jackie Evancho is another one. She came second in AGT in 2010 when she was ten years old. She has a beautiful voice. She makes about one cd a year. Her independent cd "Prelude to a dream", released  2009 was  recalled by her family. Copies of it when available sell for about $3000 on Amazon. When I tried to buy a copy in 2011 one was selling for $300, I thought that insane; I am very sorry now that I didn't buy it. Believe it or not, when one comes available it sells in a day or two. I did get it as a download though.
Carol Kidd- she is a Jazz artist.
No, I did not listen to classical cross-over and Jazz when I was in my twenties, which was when I was in my twenties. I listened to the music of the time; bands such as: Bauhaus, The stranglers, Simple minds, Ultravox, The Clash, spandau ballet, Yazoo; too many to mention. I also listened to 60's and 70's bands. I still listen to all of these a little bit

It's about time hackers take control of this situation and start pushing these bloody traders out.

Michon - check out Akvan on Bandcamp, Iranian black metal with Persian folk and dream pop overtones - great stuff and free

Forgotten Glory was his 2017 album and it is a winner.

Thank you.

It seems that I'll only be going to bed in a few hours.

To me good music contains singers who have good voices and are accompanied by more often than not, acoustic instruments.
