Daniels wrote My Dream Lady using the pseudonym Neil Moret. It was taken and arranged from the same named song It is written in the form of AABBACCDCDC with an 8-bar introduction and a 6-bar interlude whereby the AB- and CD-strains are in the major keys of Bb and G respectively. The cover of the original sheet music shows a dreamy but arch-eyed lady well in keeping with the spirit of the music which indeed has dreamlike qualities with a touch of the Orient. In this adaptation for recorder quintet the treble has most of the melodies. The 2nd tenor is called on to alternate to bass for a few bars in the C-strain - a quirk of purist editor! Most would regard those notes unimportant.
My Dream Lady was published by Whitney-Warner Publishing Co., Detroit, Michigan, USA.
