I think that Glenn's records (there were no cds) were included in the
collection acquired by the National Library of Canada - while I recall that
the records were later transferred from the GG Collection to the record
collection the NLC noted Gould's record collection in its records or
catalogue of the GG collection - you should be able to get the answer there.
