Pathamadai Sundaram Iyer was known for his excellent rendering of Dikshitar's Kamalamba Navavarana Kritis.

From the Music Academy archieves, it is noted that he performed at 3.30 pm slot on 25th December 1946 :
Pattamadai Shri Sundaram (Vocal)
Shri K. Alagirisami (Violin)
Shri Srikantan (Mridangam)

More information on Shri Pathamadai Sundaram Iyer would be highly appreciated.

I remember reading that the great Tamil writer T.Janakiraman had learnt some Dikshitar kritis from Shri. Sundaram.

One of the notable students of Pathamadai Sundaram Iyer was P.A. Periyanayaki, musician and Tamil movie actress of 1940’s.

Here is a famous scene from the 1941 Tamil Movie Sabapathy (சபாபதி) where P.A. Periyanayaki presents a Carnatic Music katcheri :-

Sangeethapriya has more Navavarnam renditions of his. I found them very moving and meditative.
