I would like to thank Navin for his great work in posting quality background scores of Raja, and some of the posts will use PolyCaRe qualifying clips from his posts.

I strongly encourage readers to provide feedback on what they consider as a good PolyCaRe arrangement, that I may have missed. As the process is quite manually intensive, oversight on some good compositions is possible.  Let us celebrate the greatest level of polyphonic sophistication achieved by a composer such as Raja, who is doing this work during our lifetimes.

Waiting for the first example

From Sep onward, there will be abundance of examples. We have to define the rules clearly, before jumping into examples. Thanks for your patience. These posts will come in handy when you hear the examples and the explanation with those examples. It will also help readers look for examples, I may have missed.
