Dmitri Shostakovich - De Profundis and Malagueña, the first two movements from Symphony no.14 op.135 (1969) based on texts by Lorca. Most versions are sung in Russian but the Haitink recording with Julia Varady and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau are sung in Spanish.

George Crumb - La guitarra, Casida de las palomas ocuras, Canción de jinette, 1860 and Casida del herido por el agua: the four Lorca settings from Songs, Drones and Refrains of Death (1968)

Manuel da Falla - Siete canciones populares españolas: El paño moruno (The Moorish Cloth), Seguidilla murciana, Asturiana, Jota, Nana, Canción & Polo (1914)

Manuel da Falla - Canción del amor dolido and Canción del fuego fatuo from the ballet El amor brujo (1914-15)

The rock band Santana also did some good songs in Spanish, including their cover of Tito Puente's Oye Como Va plus El Nicoya, Toussaint L'Ouverture, Guajira and Gitano.

Hope that's enough to get you started. :)
