Old lyrics text font

O Dorico font gurus! Any guesses as to what this marvellous old and somewhat wonkily engraved font may be?

Those web visual font matchers don’t do a good job on this one.

I’d say you’d do well with Nepomuk; or any other ‘Modern’ serif like ITC Century (Book Condensed) or Cheltenham; or Old Standard.

You’ll need to use Dorico’s Letter Spacing parameter in Paragraph Styles to give the extra space between characters, if you really want to match it.

(No doubt you’ll be keeping the sol-fa in…? :rofl:)

You can also try this: Old Music Standard :wink:

p.s: I will be releasing something close in the next few months and more!
