Fun with fonts
Purely to slake my own curiosity, night before last I dashed off a quick piece--a one-page, 20-measure, oktophonic waltz, scored for viola and piano, and dedicated to two of our indefatigable development directors. Although brief, I tried to include as many musical glyphs as possible, but in a semantically cohesive context--a musical pangram, as it were (although the double-sharps in m. 14 is a bit of a stretch.) I then set it in Bravura, Emmentaler, and Gonville, to see what the difference would be; then, after downloading the RC of 3.6, I did a version in Leland/Edwin, as well as another in Emmentaler--using Edwin text--as I understand the accidentals will be slightly different.
I did the initial note entry and page layout in Emmentaler, using the default text font (Freeserif--which I often don't use in my own scores) and font sizes. I also left the positioning of most of the elements as is--about the only things I can remember tweaking were moving the trills and the harmonics circle in m. 7 closer to the noteheads, and adjusting the tuplet bar in m. 14.
I saved multiple copies of the file, and edited each to appear in a different font. I didn't do any addtional clean-up to the copies, although some--especially Gonville--could use it. Anyway, here they are--I know which I prefer, and why--what about you?:
