His surviving works include "Coy Daphne Fled", about the nymph Daphne and her fate, and "Like as the lute delights".

Sample lyrics from "Like as the lute delights":

Like as the lute delights, or else dislikes,
As is his art that plays upon the same;
So sounds my muse, according as she strikes
On my heart strings, high-tuned unto her fame.

Daniel held some offices at court, and was the author of Songs for the Lute, Viol and Voice (1606). He was the brother of the poet Samuel Daniel.
