Daniels wrote Innocence
using the pseudonym
Neil Moret and he dedicated it to his wife. It is a beautiful romantic slow waltz with many fine touches. Its form is AABBACCA with a 12-bar introduction, a 16-bar interlude between the C-strains and a 24-bar coda whereby the A-, B- and C-strains are written in the major keys of A, F and D respectively. The C-strain in particular delights with an imitation of bells. Here the 2nd tenor plays a series of A's which should be softly tongued or even omitted if the result is too intrusive or too harsh. The cover of the original sheet music may be considered typical for many of Daniel's works - charming beauties in pastel colours in a romantic setting, The innocent so illustrated is no exception.
