Mysore Vasudevacharya was a prolific composer and one of the foremost figures in Carnatic music. His compositions are known for their lyrical beauty, rich melodic content, and adherence to traditional musical structures. He composed numerous krithis in various languages, primarily in Telugu and Sanskrit, which often pay homage to Hindu deities, especially Lord Rama and Lord Krishna, as well as various forms of the Goddess Devi.

The themes of his krithis range from devotion and spirituality to philosophical contemplation and poetic expression which explore a wide range of ragas, both popular and rare, showcasing his deep understanding and mastery of melodic structures.
He composed krithis in traditional ragas like Todi, Kalyani, Bhairavi as well as lesser-known ragas like Devagandhari, Manji, and Jaganmohini.

Vasudevacharya's compositions adhere closely to the traditional Carnatic music form, with clear delineation of pallavi, anupallavi, and charanam sections and often feature intricate rhythmic patterns, melodic embellishments, and well-crafted sahitya (lyrics) that enhance the musical experience.
