The Fountain Legacy Project was initiated to preserve and disseminate recordings of some of the many performances he conducted during that period; for this project, roughly 350 analog tapes (both open-reel and cassette) were digitized and archived for purposes of both dissemination and preservation, and the present disc is one result of that initiative. Singing at one voice per part, and unencumbered by the lushly reverberant acoustic that has always been the hallmark of the ECM sound (producer and label head Manfred Eicher having ceded the role of Tonmeister to Peter Laenger for this project), the Hilliards produce a sound that is both dry and warm, making it possible to hear and appreciate the qualities of the individual voices as well as the complex latticework of Bach's counterpoint.
