Daniels wrote Hiawatha using the pseudonym Neil Moret and he dedicated it to Mr Harvey Deardorft. As mentioned elsewhere this piece heralded in the Indian Intermezzo craze taken up by his contemporaries with gusto. It has a sonata form of AABBACCABA with a 12-bar introduction and a 4-bar coda whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of Eb and Ab respectively. The front cover of the original sheet music is illustrated by that famous Indian maid seated demurely in a wooded scene. This adaptation for recorder quintet is a little unusual in that 4 basses are needed to perform the introduction and coda. The melodies are shared by the bass, 1st tenor and treble.
Hiawatha was published by the Whitney-Warner Publishing Co., Detroit, Michigan, USA and a romantic love song version was also produced.
A tempo of 90 crotchets/min. is suggested.
