Michael Martin asked about versions of Shakespeare's songs and related music.
I'm looking forward to other responses, but have a few suggestions already.
The venerable Caedmon collection, SONGS FROM THE PLAYS OF SHAKESPEARE, has some
very worthwhile settings and performances.  I have been unable, though, to get
hold of a copy of the booklet that accompanied the recordings when first
released--that has severely limited their usefulness for me.  As for
Mendelssohn, Seiji Ozawa and the Boston Symphony have just released an
ambitious version of the Incidental Music for A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM on
Deutsche Grammophone, complete with excerpts from the play read by Dame Judi
Dench (the Titania, of course, of the Peter Hall film version).  A suite
(devised by Christopher Palmer) from the William Walton score for Olivier's
HENRY V similarly integrates music and text. That Chandos recording features
Christopher Plummer reading the appropriate excerpts.
 
There are some wonderful recordings of 16th and 17th Century music out now.  I
enjoy (and frequently use) releases from Fretwork--especially their Byrd and
Dowland recordings--and The King's Noyse.  And I still admire the Peter Pears
and Julian Bream collaboration entitled LUTE SONGS, which came out on the
London label back in the 60s (I think) and has been periodically reissued: the
samplings from Campion and Rosseter are delightful.
 
As Lorenzo says (however problematically): Mark the music.

I have to say that, after reading of this rather inane comment from Thomas
Sowell, I am beginning to have serious doubts about the Hoover Institute.
About a couple of years ago, the school paper here at UCDavis printed a guest
article from another member of the Institute that completely vilified the TA as
 a waste of money and an inveterate detriment to the undergraduate education.
What is the purpose of this institute, and why do they hire people who seem to
know little about the humanities in the academy yet still want to vent their
spleen?
 
Have a good day!
