Trinity

Rare Ragas used by Tyagaraja, Muthuswami Dikshitar and Syama Sastri.

The Trinity of Carnatic music composers - Syama Sastri, Tyagaraja and Muthuswami Dikshitar - have composed kritis in several rare ragas. In the case of Tyagaraja, some of these kritis are the only ones existing in those ragas. Syama Sastri was the only one to use ragas like Chintamani, and Muthuswami Diskhitar was the only one who composed in Jaganmohanam. This feature presents some such compositions of the Trinity.
