This is super interesting, thanks for the information.

After making inquiries I would like to add that the new music font is
called Leland in tribute to Leland Smith, the creator of the SCORE
application. It is available in SMuFL format and under the OFL license.
The text font is based on New Century Schoolbook and is also released under
OFL license.

For a quick overview of these fonts you can watch the Musescore 3.6
presentation video and for a more detailed explanation of the origin of the
design of the new music font the video of Tantacrul "How I Designed a Free
Music Font for 5 Million Musicians (MuseScore 3.6)".

In short, there are many reasons to be happy about this, since it can be
reused in LilyPond.
Cc lilypond-devel as these fonts under OFL as well as these design
explanations could trigger some discussions for LilyPond as well, I think.
