Circus Maximus - The Wind
My name is Stanislas! Another great one that’s gone to the back of my mind. I’ll probably always regret (until I just buy a copy) not buying a copy from my local record shop a year ago when I found TWO copies of it. Might have been reissues.
After the Left Banke, Michael Brown joined the group the Montage, which played in a similar baroque style. They even did a version of the LB's "Desiree" on their lone album from 1969.
It would be a stretch to call Mark Eric's 1969 album A Midsummer's Day Dream baroque. But some of the tracks are in that style. Here is one of them:
Keith Jarrett - Restoration Ruin
Jarrett isn't the greatest singer in the world, but this song is pretty good.
Bobbie Gentry - Refractions
From Margo Guryan's Take a Picture (1968):
Top tune. Great album.
Del Shannon - Gemini (1968)
I know the OP was mainly looking for the 60s variety, but just a couple of suggestions of later things that might appeal:
The Divine Comedy - Tonight We Fly
THIRTEEN MOONS - A Moment In Time
Ladybug Transistor - Catherine Elizabeth (HQ)
They won best new band in the Prog awards a couple of years back for their debut and then disappeared from view. They describe themselves as Chamber Pop. Lost of classical influences though maybe more late Romantic than Baroque.
Great arrangements & production on this song.
Dave Berry – And I have learnt to dream (1967)
