M3 is a good mic in its class, but it wouldn't be my first choice for a recording such as this. What other mics do you have, or could you borrow?
If you could afford them then the Rode M5s punch above their weight - I'm been quietly impressed with the bang-for-buck they offer. Of course, if you can splash some cash then there's a whole world of mics out there that would suit!
The Line Audio OM1 and CM3 are exceptional mics for the money - although you wouldn't really be advised to use the CM3 in ORTF as it's a 'wide' cardioid.
I could try to rent a few Rode M5s. I can rent from a company nearby.
