Daniels wrote Chung Lo
using the pseudonym
Neil Moret and he dedicated it to "his esteemed friend George Cantlie". Its form is AABBACCDCDC with a 6-bar introduction whereby the AB- and CD-strains are written in the major keys of G and F respectively. Clearly intended to be a fun piece, the cover of the original sheet music shows a smiling bald-headed Chinese whose pigtail is artistically twisted to form the letters of the title. Quite what a "monkeydoodle" is or was is anyone's guess - perhaps a whimsical alternative to the better-known Yankee Doodle. As a recorder sextet it delights with Chinese gong imitations and has an added charm in that the melodies are shared by the descant, treble and 1st tenor. Chung Lo
