(Although Liv - and/or other female vocalists in the metal/gothic genre use rather 'air' than 'true voice' - but it's beautiful to my ears nonetheless)
Tarja Turunen (has been mentioned - superb voice, ideal for Nightwish but won't work in every music situation)
Kari Rueslatten (with The 3rd And The Mortal)

Loreena McKennitt
Karen Matheson (with Capercaillie)
Moya Brennan (with Clannad)
Sara Brightman (selections, and not her classical stuff for me)
Taylor Mills (married to Todd Sucherman)

...and lots more which I'm unaware of unfortunately.

(PS: For my main recording project - gothic metal inspired by Theatre of Tragedy - we plan to have female vocals exclusively. I like that combination.)
