We recently translated into English, the rare tamil book "]Diksita Kirtana Prakashikai", published in 1936, authored by Nagavara Vidvan shrI T. S. Natarajasundaran Pillai (disciple of Sattanur Panchanada Iyer who was a direct disciple of Muttusvami Dikshitar). A PDF file of this English version is uploaded in the following two mirrored websites:--
In these two sites, among other materials, we have also placed many other Dikshitar goodies ---
An English web edition of Subbarama Dikshitar's "Sangita Sampradaya Pradarshini" (complete with Vaggeyakara caritamu and both Anubandhams, in five volumes)
Nottusvara Sahityams of Muttusvami Dikshitar with notations
Three rare Pada varnams with notation
Lyrics of 489 Dikshitar Krithis in both sanskrit and diacritical English
Venkatamakhin's "CaturdandiPrakashika" and Muddu Venkatamakhi's "Anubandham" (sanskrit and English)
Ramamatya's "Swaramela Kalanidhi" (sanskrit and English))
Narayana Tirtha's "ShrIkrishna Lila tarangini" (sanskrit and English)
Lochana Kavi"s Raga Tarangini" (sanskrit and English)
and so forth.
We hope these materials will be useful to Rasikas and scholars of Karnatik Music. Commets and suggestins are always welcome.
