Daniels wrote Poppies using the pseudonym Neil Moret. It was written at a time of much public interest in all things Japanese due to the conflict between Russia and Japan. It has the sonata form of AABACCA with an 10-bar introduction, a 12-bar interlude between the B- and A-strains and a 12-bar coda whereby the A-, B- and C-strains are in the flatted major keys of Bb, F and Eb respectively. The cover of the original sheet music shows predictably a kimono-clad miss reflecting the mood of the composition which is unburdened by Asian clichés. A great enjoyable ensemble piece for recorder quintet. The 3rd tenor is called on to alternate to bass for a few notes, a gesture to the purists for whom there are no unimportant notes!
Poppies was published by Shapiro, Remick & Co., Detroit & New York, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
