Renaissance-style moveable type setting with the new Serenissima font

I figured you people would be interested in this. The extremely awesome Early Music Sources project has released a font that mimics the look and workflow of late Renaissance typesetting, "for better or for worse" (mostly for worse, I think). It's fairly easy to use thanks to the use of ligatures, which help you in selecting from the wide variety of possible pieces of type. Info and download here:

Here is the beginning of a piece that I made a while ago, based on "Waiting for Love" by Avicii:
