Not a real straight-up answer ... but I recall reading about a fellow
using a Zoom H4 to record church organ. Even did a "fancy" home made
holder which resembled a hook (which he hung on a balcony rail) and
suspended the H4. Point is, the H4 has x/y condensers and sounds
pretty good. And I doubt if the mics are the really expensive ones :)

You can probably find the how to article with google.

Hope it helps.
