Quanto sete per me pigri, o momenti! is a cantata for soprano and basso continuo (vocal range c' to a"-flat) on a poem by Giovanni Apolloni. Two of the three manuscript sources on which the edition is based show conflicting attributions to Antonio Cesti (1623-1669) and Giacomo Carissimi (1605-1674). Both the authority of the sources and stylistic features leave little doubt, however, that the attribution to Cesti is the correct one, and it is therefore the one selected here.
