Good, or great!

Preferably 70s (and late 60s).. If YOU think it's prog, please paste the YouTube link... Duets are cool, too, and the blending of certain voices can be quite great. I keep running into them, and many are not well known.

I tend to love soothing, voices in a high register, with piano, violins, slower-tempo, but of course there are exceptions. I notice many of my favorites might be considered "classical" (piano), like the song "Face of Yesterday" by Illusion.

Here's one I love... I'll post more if the thread gets going.

Here was the beginning of my huge admiration for Catherine Howe who has a ton of great songs.

Could go with most of Renaissance's catalogue. 

But for novelty's sake, check Secrets by Allan Holdsworth.

COS is a favourite of mine, as is Catherine Ribeiro. Magma. ...

Curved Air have many great tracks.
Renaissance of course.
And more contemporary, Magenta.

I actually think this is one of the best prog songs recorded this century so far, if not ever.

Anything with the amazing Gayle Moran, including Mahavishnu Orchestra's "Visions of the Emerald Beyond."

There were a couple or more bands that immediately came to mind but then, you said preferably 70s.  Not a whole lot there other than the usual suspects.  Presume you have heard the first National Health album as well, Hatfield featuring the Northettes etc.

Yes, Renaissance's catalogue sums it up all. Annie Haslam's voice is quite angelical.

I might be in the minority here, but I actually prefer Jane Relf's voice. I like some Renaissance, but Illusion's "Out of the Mist" is quite amazing.

I just listened to Earth & Fire - Song of the Marching Children album.. Never heard it before, but its real good.

One of the few RPI bands with a female vocalist - and an outstanding one at that - Saint Just, their self-titled debut album:

Intrigued by a lot of the tracks suggested on this thread and want to explore them. 

A personal favourite is Mike Oldfield 's 'Song of Hiawatha'  based on the Longfellow poem  from ' Incantations' . Maddy Prior was the vocalist. 

Here is an extract from a live performance . The full version is on Youtube as well.

Almost anything by Mostly Autumn has either Heather Findlay or Olivia Sparnenn-Josh singing, and it doesn't get much better. I'd recommend Evergreen, Shrinking Violet, Sight of Day and Run for the Sun.
Obviously, Renaissance have sublime vocals by Annie Haslam, but the first incarnation (which later became Illusion) have Jane Relf, who is also superb. (Funny how Illusion have turned up twice today and I've never seen them mentioned in the 10 years I've been on here, which is disgraceful).
Joanne Hogg of Iona has a beautiful voice, Magenta's Christine Booth is great, Steeleye Span has the marvellous Maddie Prior and Mike Oldfield has Maggie Bell on several tracks.
A TVR is not a car. It's a way of life.
