Nigrante, Tectam Pallio

Nigrante, Tectam Pallio is the beginning of an evening hymn (hymnus vespertinus) by Magnus Felix Ennodius (q.v.), bishop of Pavia (Ticinum), where he died July 17, 521. Besides a number of theological works, he also wrote poems, among which are some hymns, which were published by Schott and Sirmond (Paris, 1611), and which are also found in the Biblioth. Patrum Lugd. This evening hymn has been translated into German by Rambach, Anthologie christl. Gesange, 1:94, and by Konigsfeld in his Lateinische Hymnen u. Gesdnge, 2d series, p. 67 sq. (Bonn, 1865).
