This is evident in the Art of Fugue and also in the beginning of his Sinfonia in F minor - though the motif is transposed down one whole tone in this piece (it's Ab G Bb A), it's still the same.
Apparently this piece contains a hidden epitaph to Maria Barbara Bach. In this arrangement they have used a choir to accentuate the hidden subtext.

From the Morimur recording by The Hilliard Ensemble and Christoph Poppen.

Maybe it's just my ears but can anyone else notice the background noise on this album? To me it sounds like voices

It's not just you, Glenn Gould was a very quirky performer. What you're hearing is one of his characteristic tics of vocalizing while he plays.
