The most well-known classical example is of course probably De Falla´s Canciones Espanolas.

I´ve recently bought some very inexpensive CDs from the Columna label with songs by Guastavino, Blancafort and Homs, which were disappointing, partly due to the performers, but this one with songs by Joaquin Nin

was very attractive & well sung, by Elena Gragera. Unfortunately however, the CD doesn´t contain any song texts.

There are mp3 samples here

As regards Granados´ Tonadillas, I haven´t encountered some really good recordings yet, but I´m sure they exist.

Fine Renaissance composers of songs include Alonso Mudarra and others.
