I recall attending a morning concert of Sri. Ranganathan at Krishna Gana Sabha some 12 years ago where he sang an exquisite pallavi in Nattaikurinji. Smts. Mani Krishnaswamy and Seetha Narayanan who were in the audience were kind enough to explain the nuances of the pallavi to me and made it so much more enjoyable for me during the concert. Amazing how he sang that day - memories to cherish forever.

I know that Sri Ranganathan is a great guru and has some very talented students. By any chance does anyone know any names?

since the details of the proceedings are documented must be available on the MA journal. Few details collected from the lec dem [ out of my memory ]
1. Misu is the house name.
2 He is a telugu brahmin and hails from a village near thirunelveli
3. His kritis are in telugu and most of them are in praise of Sadhasiva brhmendral.
4. A hand written note book containing his kritis was in the possession of
Alathoor Venkatesa Iyer and C R is denied access to it since it was kept in a safe
5. Few kritis in use now
1. Thyagaraja sathguru Mohanam
2. Devi meena Sankarabaranam
3. Neepadha darsanamae Chandra prabha
4. Parama pavana Ranjani
5 Dhaya payonidhae ?

Are we talking about the songs in the review: ... 150800.htm or of another lecdem? With regard to Meesu Krishna Iyer, the only student of Alathur Venkatesa Iyer who learnt all the compositions was Smt. Sarojini Sundaresan(read this review: She runs a music school called Ragalaya.
