Yes - nikhilalōka nāyaki in dhanyāśi and śrī pūrṇatrayīśaṁ in latāṅgi are his compositions, along with some others of the same composition type included in the same. Let's also not forget his tillānā-s in ghaṁbhīravāṇi and sindhubhairavi. TKG is also a tunesmith for selected compositions of svāmi surājānanda and purandaradāsa(some pada-s are in varṇam form).

The Sindhubhairavi thillana as rendered by the Priya Sisters can be heard in the Thillana CD release by Amutham music. TKG has also set Bharati's Vellai Thamarai as a varnam in Rasikapriya. Also he has set a verse of Adi Shankara in the ragam Omkaraswaroopini (janyam of 62) as a varnam.

The website for the books of compositions, (with notations), of Tyagaraja, Dikshitar etc by T.K.Govinda Rao is here:
http://www.vedamsbooks.com/music.htm

On page 3, When I clicked on Details for one book, I got a message indicating that due to copyrights the books are only available in India. I am not sure if the books are really available as the prices are not given. Maybe someone in India can get more details.
