Misc. Comments

Originally written as a Solfeggio (to be sung as an wordless vocalise for practice), probably by Durante who was a renowned teacher. The song later featured basso continuo and then text, probably by Spanish tenor Lorenzo Pagans. Parisotti gave the piece a Romantic style piano accompaniment and slightly altered the lyrics in his familiar "Arie antiche".
