Preetha rendered in unison the kritis of Sri Tyagaraja, "Chakkaniraja" in the ragam `Karaharapriya', "Vasudevayani" in Kalyani, "Venkatesa Ninnu" in Madyamavathi and "Nagumo" in Aberi with dedication and there was not even a single flaw and this showed their perseverance clubbed with reverance to the saint composer.
