The liner notes also tell us that the Pindar songs are led by Mrs. Edith (Jenny) Pindar; originally from Andros, with the repeated chorus being sung by her husband Raymond and daughter Geneva, and that the accompaniment vocal sounds and guitar are provided by her brother, Joseph Spence.
Unfortunately they ran out of room on the album for the end of the notes and so the last two songs are only identified by title and singers, and of course the last one is "I Bid You Goodnight".
The notes also tell us that "while we were recording this family, a crowd of little children gathered around us in the Pindars' backyard. Geneva, who was rocking her baby to sleep throughout, sang all her high alto parts as lullabyes."
