History - Media vita

Added remarks

I was unable to reproduce the Dominican virga with the stem on the left-hand side, and have substituted the standard virga instead. I was unable to reproduce the versicle sign in the rubric before <i>Ne projicias</i>, and likewise unable to render it in red. Although having the form of a Responsory, <i>Media vita</i> was sung as an antiphon to the Nunc Dimittis from the Saturday before the Third Sunday of Lent to the Saturday before Passion Sunday inclusive. In the new liturgy, it is optional as a responsory at Compline or Vespers on Saturdays, Sundays, Solemnities and Feasts in Lent and in Holy week.
