Classical rhythm, harmonious shapes, brightness of the tone: a typeface for a chorale might reflect those qualities. But the polyphony of voices as well. In terms of type design, overlapping shapes generate optical issues one has to circumvent carefully. The Voices font avoid wrong notes while building a lively and vibrant harmony within the texts.
