This passage, Mary's song, has always intrigued me. In a past Christmas pageant, I was dancing the part of Mary and had to interpret her song into movement. In studying the text, I found many commentaries stating that in this passage Mary possessed a mood of joy. That interpretation ended up influencing my choreography - creating moments of lightness, caring, love, and joy. It wasn’t about telling the story at that point, it was about rejoicing.
