Daily Quiz #20

Which famous series of compositions does this piece come from?

Answer in comments


This composition is called English Notes, by Harikesanallur Muthiah Bhagavathar, later popularised by Madurai Mani Iyer. Muthiah Bhagavathar came up with this composition when he was asked by someone to compose a Western sounding composition using carnatic elements. Apologies for mentioning it in question as a “series of compositions” as I got confused with Nottuswara Sahityas by Muthuswami Dikshitar which again follow a similar structure. You can watch a wonderful rendition of the entire composition in these links.
