It is a dynamic ever-changing art form which in its present form, accompanied by tabla, began to crystallise in the early nineteenth century. Many changes occurred in the twentieth century, most notably a radical slowing down of the vilambit part of performance and the gradual replacement of the bowed sarangi by the harmonium as the preferred instrument of melodic accompaniment. In this substantial contribution to the literature on Khayal the authors have collected transcribed translated and analysed 492 songs bandises of Khayal. The songs are all culled from commercial recordings of the twentieth century, beginning with the first ever recording of Khayal Gauhar Jan’s rendition of rag Sur Malhar recorded in 1902. The transcriptions utilise a modified form of Indian Sargam notation achieving an unprecedented degree of detail and accuracy with regard to rhythmic values and tonal nuance. Chapter one defines Khayal and looks at the birth of the recording industry in India and the history of Khayal on records. It also presents hereditary and teaching lineages of the artists whose recordings have been transcribed. Chapter two explains the notation system after surveying the great variety of notation systems which have proliferated since the mid-nineteenth century. Printed Pages: 1128
