    OK, I found a free font here:

    Unfortunately it doesn't encode the greek together with the neumes...
    Actually I wonder, are the ekphonetic neumes encoded as standalone
    characters? Shouldn't they be more like a diacritics (like the hebrew
    "accents" - "teamim" [U+0591..U+05AE] are)?

    See e.g. this:
