Carnatic Music Bibliography of Books and References

There are more than hundreds of books and references available on Carnatic music, even more on Indian music, and still more on music as a whole. But it may be useful to have a relatively comprehensive list of books and other non-Internet references (both in print and no longer available) that provide information about the theory of Carnatic music, lyrics, notations, meanings, etc. It would be impossible to list every one, however, so your additions are welcome.

Below is a long (but probably not entirely complete) list of books and references - over 400! I have included also the ones in my references page. Please keep in mind that not all of them are available anymore. The full list was kindly provided by Lakshman Ragde.

For dance-related books, please go to this booklist.
