Lydian’s authority is greater when it is spaced less tightly, as in image 3 (the line on the figure 277).
I was thinking that this too-tight spacing is best use I’ve seen of Lydian, which has always seemed fussy and liturgical, and perhaps the weakest of Middleton’s typefaces.
Roger, I agree with your characterization of Lydian, but I don’t think it can be modernized with modern spacing. If you want to use Lydian you have to embrace its stuffiness. This setting just feels off to me.
