|Sri Venkatesha Suprabhatam is the invocation chanted at dawn to awaken Lord Venkateshwara, the presiding deity of the Tirumala temple
located in Tirupati, India. The composition is credited to the 17th Century Vaishnava savant Sri Prathivadhibhayankaram Annan of
Kanchipuram and has been chanted at the temple for over 300 years.
Bhaja Govindam, a devotional composition of timeless beauty and meaning, is the work of India’s greatest theologian Sri Adi
Shankaracharya (788 - 820 AD) and is as relevant in this millennium as it was in the 9th century.
This recording, in slow tempo by Dr. Balamuralikrishna, is very meditative and gentle. The pronunciation of the Sanskrit verses is very exact
and crystal clear. Purity of diction, melodious musical voice, controlled tonal inflections and impeccable pronunciation are the hallmarks of
his singing style.
