Oberlin College Choir - Robert Fountain recordings

Greetings everyone!  I'm in the process of uploading some of the Oberlin College Choir recordings from the 50's and 60s under Robert Fountain on Youtube.  I think it's a beautiful group and I'd love to share it with you all.   I don't have that many recordings but if anyone has any recordings they'd like to share please do so!  I'd also love it if people would share their experiences with Fountain either at Oberlin, Univ of Wisconsin - Madison, or the other places he taught.
 
Here's what I have posted so far:

Hello. I grew up in Oberlin, went to Oberlin College (gradulated 1953) and LOVED hearing Robert Fountain's Oberlin College Choir. They sang two settings for William Blake Songs: Tyger Tyger and The Lamb. I have lost the recordings, but these two songs have sounded in my head ever since (I am now 83). What is the chance that you can supply these?  With appreciation, Edwin Taylor, eftaylor(a)mit.edu

Sang and studied under Robert Fountain for my degrees at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  I can only say that it was an almost unearthly experience!  I was with the Concert Choir when it toured Venezuela. The absolute joy he presented to both the listeners and audience is without description!  Thanks for reminding us of his craft.  Mark Gottschalk (DrMJG(a)me.com)
