This review is from: Glenn Gould plays Bach: The Well-Tempered Clavier Books I & II, BWV 846-893 [+digital booklet] (MP3 Download)
No one could fault Glenn Gould's insight into this wonderful music. His playing is flawless and extremely crisp - some might even say too crisp, though that is a matter of personal taste. The biggest negative on this otherwise superb recording is the sound of Glenn singing along under his breath as he plays. I wish I could ignore it. But I can't.

That is a personal comment rather than a comment about the recording

That's the 'Gould-way'.
There's a SONY recording of the Gouldberg Variations on a YAMAHA eletronic piano (Zenph-Re recording) without the humming, the others, Gould is there, humming and singing along...
