We always admire the musical creations of Muthusvamy Dikshitar. The ragas, archaic phrases seen in them, and the apt usage of phrases all garner our attention. An analysis of the text Sangita Sampradaya Pradarshini, an authoritative text to understand the compositions of the Dikshitar family, written by his grandson Subbarama Dikshitar gives us another perspective. This text clearly shows a unique style adopted by Muthusvamy Dikshitar, considerably different from his family members. Many of the elements seen in his compositions, if not all, were inspired from the earlier works like gitas of Venkatamakhin and the varnas and kirtanas of his father Ramasvamy Dikshitar.
