Daniels wrote Cherry
using the pseudonym
L'Albert and he dedicated it to "his esteemed friend C. W. Mayes". The intermezzo is derived from the same named highly sentimental song also published in 1906 with lyrics by Arthur Gillespie. The song is about a lover a-singing and a-sighing for his "Cherry Sweet" who shown as a demure maid on the cover of the original sheet music. This should be borne in mind when interpreting this adaptation for recorder quintet. Its form is AABBCCABA with a 10-bar introduction and which also double as coda. The final notes of the C-strain require skilled over-blowing - if this is too difficult then they may be played an octave lower, not too much is lost thereby.
