Satyabalu Check out Chandrika Tandon[s album Soul Call Om Namo Narayana which was nominated for a grammy award 2 years back.I think one of the verses is in Suddha sarang.

I am now travelling and when I get back I will provide you with details of Raga lakshanam if necessary from Chandrika herself. Go to You Tub type in Chandrika tandon Soul call.

In the HM system shuddh sArang is placed under kAfi thAT. It uses the scale of: S R M R M* P N S*--S* N D P M* P D P M R S. An alternate scale is: S R P^ M* P^ M* P M P N D^ N S*--S* N D M P M* R M^ *N S (*=tivra, ^=grace note).
In the ArOha of the first scale both madhyams are used. All other svarAs are tivra. This rAgA is sung during the second prahara of the day.
Halt on R and N sound beautiful. Both madhyams are used side by side in avarOha as M* P M* M R. N as nyAsA is very pleasing. In the svarA group N D M* P , svarAs D M* are quickly uttered. This creates a special effect in this rAgA. If it is not done but uttered slowly it will sound like shyAmkalyAN

In the CM system a rAgA called shuddha sArangA exists but it has no relationship with the north indian counterpart. It is a janya of riSabhapriyA and has a scale of S G M* P N S--S D P M* G R S.

extract from Raganidhi.

Shudha Sarang brings to mind , the genius called S Kalyanraman
Here are two samples . He is in a demonstrative mood in one of them .The other one is a classic exhibition of this raga within two minutes.

The Tamil film Karnan has a beautiful song in Shudda Sarang sung by TMS and Susheela, tuned by Viswanathan-Ramamurthy - 'iravum nilavum vaLaraTTumE'
