Compositions of Saint Tyagaraja

S. Bhagyalekshmy (Editor)
Synopsis Ages have not withered the appeal of Tyagaraja kritis and even today lovers of music are enthralled by his music, which transcends barriers of nationality, religion, and language. Tyagaraja’s compositions have become real classics, "companion of all times". In this book I have endeavoured to bring out the notated text of selected compositions of the saint composer. I have provided a brief introduction summarising the biography of the saint composer and enumerating the salient aspects of his music. It is difficult to select compositions from Tyagaraja’s vast treasure house because each composition is a masterpiece and each has a separate significance from the point of view of his life or the technical or literary aspects of music. Still I have selected compositions which are representative and which are popular with lovers of music. It is difficult to include all the compositions grouped as Pancharatnas in a select anthology. So I have included one composition each from his Pancharatna kritis, as a representation from each group. I hope this will make the book more useful to the learners of compositions.
