The Lelandia family of fonts is a derivative of Leland that is expressly reconfigured to work within Sibelius. Leland is a SMuFL-compliant music font family, designed by Martin Keary and Simon Smith at Muse Group for MuseScore, its scoring application.
Leland is a font family modeled after the appearance of the symbols produced by the venerable SCORE music publishing application, and named after its creator, Leland Smith, who passed away in 2013.
Because Sibelius does not support SMuFL (Standard Music Font Layout), a series of derivative fonts needed to be created in order for Leland to be compatible with Sibelius. These fonts are:
- Lelandia Std
- Lelandia Text Std
- Lelandia Special Std
- Lelandia Special II Std
- Lelandia Special Extra Std
- Lelandia Ornaments Std
- Lelandia Metronome Std
Each Lelandia font is intended as a replacement for its analogous Opus font, with the exception of Special II, which is an additional font containing Leland characters not found or easily replaced in Opus, such as precomposed octave clefs.
Included with the Lelandia fonts are:
- Academico, a serif text font designed by Daniel Spreadbury at Steinberg for Dorico and intended to pair well with Lelandia;
- Gothic A1, a sans-serif text font designed by HanYang I&C Co, for compatibility with other fonts and products released by NYC Music Services;
- Figurato, a figured bass font designed by Florian Kretlow.
Included along with these fonts is a Sibelius template with a house style designed to take maximum advantage of Lelandia’s characteristics. The house style is a simplified version of the house style used in the Scoring Express Chamber templates, but uses Lelandia as its main music font. Although you do not need the house style or the Academico font to use the Lelandia fonts, they are recommended.
