AllMusic Review by

A very fine recording, it involves vocals by Semmangudi Srinavasa Aiyar, the vina player K.S. Narayanaswami, and mridangam player Palghat Ragu. They perform two kritis by Muttuswami Dikshitar, one of the three founders of Carnatic music, along with two raga medleys. Major musicians (this series is bizarre in its reluctance to treat performers as individual artists rather than carriers of a style), excellent notes, and recording by John Levy.
