Here, the Song of Mary (Luke 1:46-55) is combined with traditional Thai folk-instrumentation and Thai-derm (classical music) to evoke the ‘humble, lowly, and meek’ - yet joyful theme contained in Mary’s Magnificat. Thai Ruk Tung (luktung) music, translated “child of the field” is a form of provincial folk music common to the Isaan region of Northeast Thailand. Ruk Tung’s expressive qualities are contained in vocal quavers known as ‘ruks’ or ‘children’ and expressed in the form of elongated or shortened vibratos and inflections.
