The Sa?gitanaraya?a is a Sanskrit text on music and dance written in the seventeenth century by Puru?ottama Misra, a minister at the court of King Gajapati Naraya?adeva of Parlakimi?i in Orissa and his instructor in musicology, with the assistance of the king. While the precise date of the Sang"itaniiriiya1Ja is not known, its relationship to Puru?ottama Misra and Gajapati Naraya?adeva prompts us to place it in the first half of the seventeenth century. One of the most valuable and extensive texts on music and dance from eastern India, the Sa?gitanaraya?a consists of four chapters, the first on vocal music (gitanir?aya), the second on instrumental music ( vadyanir?aya), the third on dance and dramatic art (na?yanir?aya), and the fourth chapter that provides examples of musical compositions (suddhaprabandhodhara?a).Altogether fifteen manuscripts of the text are known to exist, some full and some fragmentary. An edition of the text comprising all the four chapters was published first by Orissa Sangeet Natak Akademi in 1966 under the joint editorship of Pandit Vanambaracarya, Kavichandra Kalicharan Patnaik and Shri Kedarnath Mahapatra. A more recent edition of the three musicological chapters was accomplished in 1987 by Jonathan Katz at Oxford but remains yet unpublished. Present edition is the first critical edition, which also provides an English translation of the text.
