Any concert of Carnatic Music. even today, would predominantly
have the compositions of Thyagaraja, Muthuswami Deekshitar and
Syama Sastry, the Trinity of South Indian Classical Music. Maestros
as well as beginners prefer Trinity’s compositions to be sung more
and frequently. In this context we felt the need of familiarizing the
compositions of post Trinity Composers who have contributed
considerably to the growth of Carnatic Music following the path
shown by their pioneers, the Trinity and others. In this direction, the
Department of Music, Kannur University has organized a national
Seminar on the topic "Post Trinity Composers of Carnatic Music’
from 22"4 to 24" January 2019 at our Swamy Ananda Tirtha (SAT)
Campus in Edat, Payyanur, Kerala. The response was overwhelming
and we’ve got good number of scholarly articles from senior
Professors as well as Research scholars. The Department takes this
opportunity to express our sincere appreciation of the efforts of
everyone who has contributed to this seminar. We are grateful to our
Vice Chancellor Prof. Gopinath Ravindran for providing us this
Opportunity to organize the National seminar and publish the papers
presented there. Department of Music is also thankful to Members of
the Syndicate, Pro Vice Chancellor Prof. P.T. Raveendran, Registrar,
