Hello Prof Long:
Being a classical musician, I might recommend the following:

Claudio Monteverdi (Italy): L'Orfeo (1607), Vespers (1610), Coronation of Poppea (1642)
Michael Praetorius (Germany): Terpsichore (circa 1615)
William Lawes (England): Consort Music, Consorts for Viols
Jean-Baptiste Lully (France): operas Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme, Atys
Henry Purcell (England): The Faerie Queen, Dido and Aeneas, Te Deum
Arcangelo Corelli (Italy, late 17th cent): Violin Concertos
Dieterich Buxtehude (German-Danish): Cantatas

In terms of recordings, many of these composers' works were recorded by Jordi Savall on his Alia Vox label.
One outstanding recording is Savall's cross-section of music by Lully, music which would have been written
during and shortly after Paradise Lost:
for William Lawes:
and a great recording of the Vespers by Andrew Parrot:
