Greetings from Australia,

So what font is it, actually? You did not mention.
I didn't mention because it is visible in the pdf...
But of course it would have been polite to explicitely mention Adobe Minion Pro.

What I like about it is
- the 'modern' appearance (compared to e.g. LilyPond's Century Schoolbook
- its variety of font faces,
- especially the option of having a condensed version that harmonizes well with LilyPond's 'weight'.

The Minion Pro font is bundled by Adobe with Adobe Reader. If you install Reader on Linux, the font files are copied to /opt/Adobe/Reader9/Resource/Font (that's where they are on my system), and if you install Reader on Windows, they are copied to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Resource\Font, or some similar path depending on the version of Reader.
Ah, that's interesting.
But the font is still non-free (in terms of Free Documentation), and especially there are only the four basic font faces included and not the other 12 ones (medium, semibold, condensed and its combinations)
