'Lives of Saints and theological collections of the early 14th
century, in Latin; bound up with a Latin
metrical arithmetic and other matter in hands of the 15th century'
(Warner and Gilson). This section (no. 27 in Warner and Gilson),
is in the older part of the MS; it is written in a smaller Gothic
book hand. The text of Quanne Hic se is preceded by another
Middle English lyric on the Passion, a dialogue between the
crucified Christ and his mother, Stond wel, moder, under rode, with
music; it is followed by a further Middle English lyric on the
Passion, in which Christ addresses the reader, Thenc, man, of
min harde stundes (edited in Brown
(1932), p. 2), and a French religious lyric, again with music.
