Songs of the Trinity in the ragas Shuddha Saveri, Bhairavi, Saveri and Kalyani.

Tyagaraja, Muthuswami Dikshitar and Syama Sastri were contemporaries and were born within a few years of each other. More remarkably, they hailed from the same town of Tiruvarur in the Tanjavur area of Tamil Nadu. They had many more common characteristics. Their importance is not just that they heralded a new era in Carnatic music through their outstanding compositions that spanned a range of structures and styles; theirs was also an age when this genre of music came to be affiliated more with the temples than the royal courts. This programme has compositions of the Trinity in the ragas Saveri, Kalyani, Shuddha Saveri and Bhairavi
