About

I thought Donovan was like a little elf, this magical person. They sat either side of me, him and Paul, playing their acoustic guitars. I was on a stool in between, sitting there like a tiny mouse, singing this beautiful music.

Mary Hopkin, from the liner notes of 2010 reissue of Postcard

When Paul was producing the Postcard album for Mary Hopkin, he used a group of six young session musicians who each played different sized recorders on one of the tracks. There were twin girls called Jeanne and Marguerite Dolmetsch, whose family are well known for making musical instruments, and Paul, Brian, Peter and Christine Blood. The two families were unrelated then but Brian Blood later married Marguerite Dolmetsch and now heads up the Dolmetsch company.
