 > TeX Gyre Chorus is a font derived from handwritten letterforms of the 
 > Italian Renaissance. It was designed by Hermann Zapf (ITC Zapf Chancery, 
 > 1979; currently, other variants of this typeface are available). 
 > TeX Gyre Chorus is based on the URW Chancery L Medium Italic font, but 
 > heavily extended. The Vietnamese and Cyrillic characters were added by 
 > Han The Thanh and Valek Filippov, respectively.
 > The font contains nearly 900 glyphs. Unlike for other fonts 
 > from the TeX Gyre collection, Greek letters are missing and so are small 
 > caps (using capital forms of chancery characters for typesetting whole 
 > words should be forbidden by law). The font is available in Postscript, 
 > TeX and Open Type formats. Please note that with the release of TeX Gyre 
 > Chorus the QuasiChancery font becames obsolete.

Thanks for the upload.
