Daniels wrote Moonlight using the pseudonym Neil Moret and he dedicated this delightful serenade to one Mr Carl A. Preyer of Lawrence, Kansas. Whilst not exactly comparable with Beethoven's famous same-named sonata this piece nevertheless evokes a moonlit atmosphere to which a little imagination could easily add a courting couple, spooning under a full-moon whilst gentle passing clouds subtly heighten and lessen the nocturnal luminance. It is written in the form of AABBACCABA with a 10-bar introduction whereby the AB- and C-strains are in the major keys of F and Bb respectively.
Moonlight was published by Whitney-Warner Publishing Co., Detroit, Michigan, USA.
A tempo of 70 crotchets/min. is suggested.
