Meantone the author uses most often:

7/48 meantone.
It is just in between of Pythagorean Tuning (with pure 5th) and 2/7 Meantone which is in turn just in between of 1/4 Meantone (with pure Maj.3rd) and 1/3 Meantone (with pure Min.3rd).
   7/48 = ( (1/3 + 1/4) / 2 ) / 2
It has 5th/4th and 3rds/6ths equally less pure, and sounds mixed, not simple.
(Here, Meantone is not a means to approximate to Just-Intonation singing/playing.)
From the viewpoint, 12-tone equal temperament (as a kind of Meantone) has 5th too pure, and tends to single-dimensioned-ness too much.

the author's most favorite composers:

Palestrina, Alessandro Scarlatti,  Handel,
Beethoven, Muzio Clementi,
Brahms, Mahler, Manuel de Falla, Furtwängler
