Just to put things in place (while not disagreeing with you):However, I think where the real problem comes in is, when you are writing in a more accessible style, there is this temptation or trap to fall into where you start writing in a 1900's or 1800's (or 1700's or 1600's) style, or some combination of those (as I believe Jenkins does in Palladio), seemingly completely ignoring everything that happened in the 20th and 21st centuries, almost pretending they did not exist.
There is an exact term for the category/genre that "Palladio" falls in:
It's called "Easy Listening"
The fact that it uses a traditional instrumentation and mimics some baroque stereotypes doesn't make it somehow "classical music".
Comparing it to Vivaldi (and similars) offers just blatant ignorance on the subject. But since i already mentioned the Dunning-Krueger effect, there is no more left to say in this thread.
(i know, it wasn't you who made this stupid comparison)
