I wasn't going to add any more but as jeffj has expanded on my suggestion:
Two things-
1.) For an alternative, see end of the line where an A7 is suggested again with the c# in the melody - tho' I quite like the sound of the maj7 having tried it on the piano.
2.)Further in the tune (section in A ) An A chord is followed by an A6: an A chord and the melody note f# - a version of A6.
Otherwise an F#min is also close by.
Hope this is useful.

Thanks, Jeff and dunlustin.
I think I was suffering from tunnel vision and believed everything there to be gospel.
I suppose the chords could have been added by someone other than Passarini as I believe he played mainly the little Italian organettos so there would be no reason for him to write down the chords.
I did try various other chords and eventually settled on F#m but I will go back and try the other suggestions.
