Flowers at His Feet - III

Sringara Sankeertanas

This album has a splendid collection of the Srirangara Padams of Annamacharya. The Sringara depicted in his compositions do not portray mundane raw eroticism but they are replete with spiritual love or Madhura Bhakthi

Tallapaka Annamacharya (1408 - 1503) was the first composer who divided his compositions into Pallavi and Charanams. He was one of the most profilic composers, Carnatic music has ever known with 32,000 sankeertanams to his credit of which only 14200 are available today. He was a pioneer in various types of compositions and therefore rightly entitled 'Padakavita Pitamaha'. His compositions have been classified into Spiritual and Sringara Sankeertanams. These compositions cover almost every aspect of the Tirumala temple and the surrounding area.
