Preface

 

This is the Concluding volume in the series of books planned for the; exposition of the Theory of South Indian Music in all its comprehensive aspects. South Indian music can stand on a par with western music in having an intelligent and well-developed system of musicology and which can be studied at the highest levels. Some of the topics dealt with in this book appeared originally as articles contributed by the author to various journals. They have since been amplified and re- written in the light of subsequent researches and presented here.

 

Matter treated of in Chapters V (Indian music and Western Music - some parallels) and Chapter XIV (Music in Europe and other countries) are more of interest from the point of view of Comparative music.

 

Twenty pallavis inclusive of well known pallavis and scholarly pallavis art: given with notation in Chapter XIX. This along with the fifty pallavis given in South Indian music: Book IV brings the total number of pallavis given in notation in this Series to 70. Lakshanas of 28 ragas are given in Chapter XVIII and in Appendix II. This brings the total number of ragas described in the several books of the Author to 134.
