I heartily concur with Per about this one, which I picked up in a
remainder bin about a year ago.  Mattei has one of the most beautiful,
evenly produced baritone voices that I've ever heard, and the Stenhammar
songs fit him like a glove.  Even if you never follow along with the
texts, it's the sort of CD that makes you simply want to put it on the
CD player and wallow in the sheer sound of the voice.
