Recording choirs and instruments

Hi All,
 
I am thinking about my 4th recording with my choir and would like advice from you.
 
I have been listening to samples from a number of recording companies here in the UK.  The ones I like
  • don't sound claustrophobic (very close to the choir)
  • aren't too far away (all building and no detail)
For acappella music I have got a couple that look excellent - well recorded but all have something that I find odd (this may be just me).  In the piano accompanied music; They clearly have miked the piano separately from the choir (as is usual) but all sound like the piano was in another room - it just sounds odd to me.
 
Obviously you all can't hear what I'm talking about but I would appreciate any reflections or advice you might have on recording choir and piano.
 
Best wishes
 
Mark
