electronic instrument at the beginning of "Good Night"?

Hi Ken,

Thanks so much for being here!

I'm wondering what we hear in the intro to the Beatles' "Good Night" (a high D, with a lot of vibrato, at around 7 seconds in).

Is it an Ondes Martenot? I suppose it could be a coloratura soprano, but the attack of the note doesn't sound human. Theremin? Musical Saw?

Thanks again,

Hi Andrew, I thought I knew but wanted to check and upon listening I can confirm that it's a female voice. I do not remember who it was.
