I've already encountered the situation that I had a prescribed style
sheet calling for Arial fonts and the sample sheets from a previous
publisher clearly showed Helvetica (quite easier to achieve with a
TeX-based workflow so I was quite relieved).

It may be that the "prescribed" music font here similarly is a
same-purpose clone of something saner in which case a replacement will
quite likely go unnoticed anyway.
