The music of this arrangement is from the Andante cantabile movement of Haydn’s string quartet in F, op. 3 no. 5, the ‘Serenade’, often now attributed to Roman Hoffstetter. The Italian words were taken from the secular cantatas by Nicola Porpora known as ‘La pesca’ and ‘La tempesta’ (1735). According to an American source Pauline Viardot’s work was first published in 1845, but that seems impossible. Manuscripts are at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, at Harvard (with a musical variant), and at the Médiathèque Hector Berlioz (one there having orchestral parts).
