I haven't a clue what it is. Perhaps someone around here will be familiar with it.
It's "Black Chancery," a shareware or freeware typeface that has been around for a very long time (in digital font terms).
Thank you, Mr. Phinney! You're a peach.
Black Chancery is one of the first freeware fonts. It is also one of the first "stereotypes", used for every known fantasy convention from 1988-1994.
I just hope that the sample was not actually from promotional materials for a performance of Mozart's opera. Divine music deserves divine typography.
