Gerson ascribes the text to this and other of his vocal compositions to an Antonio Ganganelli, author of an anthology, Raccolta Di Prose, E Poesie Di Vario Genere, Ad Uso De' Studiosi Della Lingua Toscana, published in Hamburg 1810 while Georg Gerson was there studying music and business. The poem is found page 179 in Ganganelli's anthology, marked as a translation from a French poem which turns out to be an anonymous romance, S'il est vrai que d'être deux to a tune by François Adrien Boieldieu (1775-1834). The text was published in Charles Malo's collection, Les chansons d'autrefois: vieux chants populaires de nos pères, Paris 1861, page 181, the tune in a collection, La clé du Caveau, Paris 1811, page 235, no. 538. Stanzas 1-3 of the Italian text are translations from the French original while stanza 4 most
likely is a free addition.
