bhajarE rE Citta bAlAmbikAm, maybe?
Also these krithis are attributed to Dikshitar - bAlAmbikayA kaTAkshitOham - shriranjani / bAlAmbikAyA param nahi rE - kAnaDA. IIRC Dikshitar addresses Devi as bAlAmbikE in a couple other pieces [ghanTA navAvaraNam?].
karuNanidhiyE tAyE - bauLi / mAtA innum vAdA - shriranjani / trilOka mAtA - paraju might be nice songs for this concert since they all refer to Devi in 'motherly' terms. shri mAtrubhUtam is of course most apt for this occasion.
Mohan, congratulations to you, your wife and your families!!!
