Best microphone for classical music video

I have a Zoom Q4 video recorder, and I'm looking to make some video recordings of classical music (voice and piano). If I want to improve the audio quality, can anyone recommend an external mic that I can plug into my video recorder? I'm new to this, so any tips about mic set-up and so on would be very helpful. I'm thinking of spending between £200 and £500 ($280-$700)

Figuring out the best use of my limited space to record vocals!

Hey yall! Very new to all recording but I wanted to make a little area in my room for recording vocals, but I'm not sure what my best options are! I made a little video to show what I'm working with specifically, but I've been doing research and some people say use your closet but others say dont if it's too small, and I just want to hear any opinions on where to go from here. I cant spend much more than I already have but can make some small purchases if it would make a significant difference. All advice is appreciated!

Is Motu's M2 the best bang for the buck in an entry level interface?

Ive attached the conversion spec.

This might be the scarlett killer! For the cost of a scarlett 2i2 the M2 is spec'd much closer to a clarett. The m2 is about 1/3 the cost of clarett.

It exceeds clarrett's DA dynamic range by 1-2 db, depending on the model, and Scarlett by 12db! On the AD side M2 falls 3-4 db short of clarett, and beats scarlett by 3-4db.

Thunderbolt 3 to PC - what PCIe card works best?

Wow, it took me a long time to get back on my feet but I am getting there.

I'm looking at the Apollo X8P to run on my faithful i7 which is still on W7. I will upgrade to W10. Hopefully I can use it.
Anyone know much about running Thunderbolt 3 on a PC? How to interface it best, what card. Maybe I can't even use my current PC box. Just starting research now. :)
