- According to Grove Music, Denza was a singing professor at the Royal Academy of Music, and he "composed more than 500 songs, partsongs and cantatas to Italian, French and English texts."
- There is a remote possibility that this comes from a larger work, but recordings that give the original opera for other works on the disc give no larger work for this song, so it probably was composed as a single song.
Mentioned in a 6 October 1889 issue of the Gazzetta musicale di Milano (already with optional violin) (probably a review of a performance, as a publisher is not mentioned).
