Daniels wrote Cleopatra Finnegan using the pseudonym Neil Moret. Its form is AABBACCAB whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of G and C respectively. The front cover of the original sheet music describes this novelette as an Afro-Celtic Intermezzo - now there's a piece of Irishness if ever there was one! Cleopatra herself is shown in green, of course, set against a halo of shamrocks. An amusing hieroglyphic is also shown whose symbols include a spade, harp, cow, pipe and bottle (stout or whiskey?). This adaptation for recorder sextet is a splendid tenor/bass affair and delights with a fine great bass solo in the C-strain. A must for bass players!
Cleopatra Finnegan was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
